<div style="float:right;"><div class='p_embed p_image_embed'>


Today , I saw a news on my facebook. Yes, Keith bad news. He dead in previous week. This is terrible news for me. He is a great guy who working too much on Myanmar Unicode and Myanmar Linux also.  

Keith Stribley, he has spent about 5 of the past 7 years living in Yangon (Rangoon), Myanmar (Burma) working on Myanmar Unicode Software in his spare time. He is grateful to his wife Khaing Zar Win, for her help, encouragement and patience during this work. Khaing Zar was born near the mouth of the Thanlwin River in Mawlamyine.

We would like to thank our friends and colleagues both in Myanmar and outside it for their help and cooperation in this work.

Keith worked as a software engineer for a major multinational company for almost 5 years in the UK before coming out to Asia. He has a masters degree in Physics.

I know him from http://www.thanlwinsoft.org/ . He created Paduck Unicode font that is one of the opensource fonts. He already create Ekaya keyboard for Myanmar Unicode. Another great creation is Firefox addon. It include spell checking for Myanmarsar and can convert Zawgyi to Unicode website. We miss you. Rest in peace , Keith.

ကောင်းရာသုဂတိလားပါစေ ….. Keith
