    RIP Sir Dennis Ritchie, and thank you. :'(

    Without a doubt. He and his kind enabled all kinds of things we take for granted.

    More important than Steve Jobs, yet simply not acknowledged. Sad day, R.I.P.

    Exactly. If Jobs was Jezus-like, Ritchie was God. (No offense intended).
    RIP mr C.

    No need to compare.

    He was certainly very important.

    many good man get name fame lot of noise in this world :doubt:

    but great souls come to this world done their job....... and go silently.......:'(

    people hardly know about them .............just like some undercover KGB agents created by GOD to do great job for humanity. :'(

    may that great soul rest in peace or may he and god play unix games or programming in heaven.

    hmmm .......i am not a good to guess

    but i wish that great soul great luck on his next journey where ever it is :thumb:
