It is indeed a sad day when one of the true pioneers of the modern technological world passes away. C and Unix are such huge corner stones of everything around us (like the ability for me to write this, and you to read this), and have inspired so much that followed, that you have to wonder where any of us would be without them.

it seems the world is losing inventors at this time.


He was a brilliant man, I learned a great deal from his books and lectures.

#include <stdio.h>

int main() {
(void) printf("goodbye, world!");
return 0;

Really sad. RIP.

I've seen a lot of comments on the net comparing dennis's death to that of steve jobs, where steve received many more farewells but not doing even half of what dennis did, and i agree.

RIP Dennis

RIP another legendary hero. First the owner of Apple. Then the creator the of C language. Who's next? Bill Gates?
