C and Unix pioneer Dennis Ritchie reported dead

John Hosen

Very sad news

And unfortunately hardly any media coverage unlike the hype over a certain turtle-necked jumper wearer who died last week. (I'm looking at you BBC News).

Yeah, yeah, Apple made nice shiny things but without Dennis' work none of it would have existed.

So let's raise a glass to Dennis, thank you for giving us UNIX and C.
