    It's very sad Dan. He had so much enthusiasm ... He was very unlucky as apparently stingrays rarely attack.

    I never saw that coming. He had a wife and kid(s?) too.

    he spent all his time with dangerous animals but was killed by a fish about as deadly as a housecat.
    Here's why Linux is easier than Windows:
    Package Managers! Apt-Get and Portage (among others) allow users to install programs MUCH easier than Windows can.
    Hardware Drivers. In SuSE, ALL the hardware is detected and installed automatically! How is this harder than Windows' constant disc changing and rebooting?

    he was a showoff if you ask me. especially when he took his child into the crocodile ring, but that was just plain wreckless and irresponsible.
    the stingray was probably pushed to it since they normaly wont jab people in the heart with their stings.

    Unhappy

    I loved watching his shows. This is a huge loss to the animal world and to Irwin fans.

    my favourite was the komodo dragon one where he got whipped on the leg. easuter: he wasn't a showoff, he just did what he loved and was enthusiastic about it. he's done some great things (look at his wikipedia article) and i hope that he's remembered as such.

    I was never a big fan of him, and even though I feel sorry for his family, I don't feel sorry for him... It just finally catched up to him! I have to admit that he was an enthusiastic guy, but I think he started feeling untouchable. It sucks that he left a small child behind.

    I really liked his shows and documentaries. It was nice to see someone who is so enthusiastic about something they love. I am really sorry to hear the bad news.
