I didn't find out about Ligesh's death until Thursday of last week, when I came to the forums to post a question. I was both shocked and stunned at the news to say the least.|
After seeing the news in the forum I continued to read many posts in the forums, read several newspaper accounts of the event, and even read through his blog. It's just such a shame.
Every day since then I have found myself thinking about Ligesh several times throughout the day. Actually, and more correctly, about his situation, since I didn't know him personally.
I now realize just what an amazing job Mr. Ligesh was doing. The countless hours of thought and effort he most obviously had put into building lxLabs. For the last many years lxLabs must surely have been the driving force in his life, and occupied the overall vast majority of his time. Between coding and manning the forums, I'm amazed he had any time remaining for a private social life. To say the least I find the drive and perseverance he had towards this project to be admirable.
I can honestly say that after looking at and studying various demos from competing products like cPanel and DirectAdmin as well as others, I personally cannot find one where the layout is as intuitive and user friendly as lxAdmin/Kloxo was.
It was (is) a great product; designed from the ground up and maintained by someone who obviously cared about it and wanted to produce the best possible control panel product anywhere in the world. Personally, I don't think he was very far away from having achieved that goal.
Thanks to all those who continue to help other users through this forum. If lxLabs does in fact go away, it was surely a one-of-a-kind product and community. I will miss it dearly.
