A dear friend of mine, Richard Russell, has passed away. It is a sad day.

Richard is responsible for the most important benchmark on the planet, the Windows Experience Index, a project he managed for Microsoft. Prior to working at Microsoft, Richard worked for AMD.

I worked alongside Richard on the BAPCo consortium where he always fought the good fight.

Richard was a man of strong faith and he carried the awful burden of cancer for years. God, please bless Richard’s soul and give strength and protection to his family and those who will miss him.

You are missed, Richard.
