Ritchie was a genius in Computing Science just as Einstein in Physics.

Code: [Select]
#include <stdio.h>
#include <stdlib.h>

int main()
{
    if (!c) { software = nil; }

    if (!software) {
        MAC = nil;
        UNIX = nil;
        WINDOWS = nil;
        PIC = nil;
        AVR = nil;
        MCU = nil;
    }

    if (!MCU) {
        iphone = nil;
        everything = nil;
        people = stone_age;
    };

    while (c) {
        printf("RIP Dennis.\n");
    };

    return END_OF_WORLD;
}

if something can select, how cant it be intelligent? if something is intelligent, how cant it exist?

It's sad to see that NYTimes has relegated such tragic news to their "More Technology News" section. Oh, how society has failed miserably at properly honoring he who has quietly given so much to her. :(

Bit of a bummer he's gone. But C lives on.

I have read a lot of posts on one of the social networking sites concerning how Jobs have gotten more attention when he passed, far better from one of the pioneers of computer programming. Though how you are going to be cherished would not really be determined on how much work you put through but how you have touched users and inspired them.  I mean, when it comes to the amount of work, I am certain that Ritchie would be getting the upperhand.

this is the "hidden" truth of "money matters". its politics i'm speculating... "money politics" and "butt licking" stuffs. and Steve's demise (may he RIP) is also a good prove how money and science cannot buy everything.
money = a system made by human in an attempt to try to make a perfect world
