[Google] RIP Dennis Ritchie, Creator of the C Language & UNIX - Page 3

post #21 of 95
I'm learning C right now in college - I wonder what my professor will say tomorrow in class when he gives his lecture.

I'm writing a five paragraph essay on tumblr about why Ritchie was awesome, so that hopefully the ungrateful hipsters that infest the place will understand how to appreciate a real visionary.

Nobody will read it, but I don't even care. I recognize that his work was crucial to the operation of modern computer systems, and I'm very sad that he passed away.

I'm a bit illiterate as to the who's who in the programming world, but my sentiments certainly go to his family, friends and co-workers.

It's people like him that many times go unnoticed but end up having an immense impact in the background of what constitutes our day to day lives.

It is hard to imagine how computers would have developed without the development of C and UNIX.

His legacy will live on in what is one of the most influential programming languages.

May the billions of lines of C code be a measure of this man's genius.

As much as it sucked to lose Steve Jobs, this a bigger loss imo. He left quite a legacy and his impact on the computing world is immense.

This. Shut up about it. No one cares about your pedantic PC's are better garbage.

Both Steve Jobs and Dennis Ritchie made massive contributions to technology, without EITHER of them, we'd be nowhere, and that's the only thing that should be said.

The world has lost an amazing mind, I don't think people realise how massive his contributions were.

RIP. I'm a CS major and much of what I do was shaped by this man.

On a side note, I'm a little saddened to see some posters taking shots at Steve Jobs in this thread. Not exactly sure what compels someone to come into a thread like this and state that one man who just died is better/more important than another.
