In Memory of Dennis Ritchie   1 comment

The accomplishments of Steve Jobs vs. those of Dennis Ritchie

I was saddened to learn tonight to learn tonight of the death of Dennis Ritchie – especially since he died last October and I’m just now hearing of it.  It seems unjust that someone who contributed so much was never given the recognition he deserved.  As a Linux user (Linux is based on UNIX) and Computer Science major I owe so much to this man, I hope someday I get to express my gratitude to him for all he has done.
