This dude is the creator of one of the most widely used OSS. He named it after his first daughter. Later, when he did not like the direction his creation was taking, he forked the project and named it after his younger daughter. Not to leave his son ‘Max’ disappointed, he also created another OSS and named it after him.

Who is he?
