RIP Dennis Ritchie

Co-writer of the C language and co-creator of the UNIX operating system Dennis Ritchie sadly passed away last Saturday.  It seems his death was somewhat overlooked due to the passing of Steve Jobs.

Thanks to Ritchie’s contributions to computing, we have the C language and its derivatives (including Java, C++, Objective-C, JavaScript, and more), and UNIX with its derivatives (including Mac OS X, BSD, Solaris, Linux).
