R.I.P Dennis Ritchie

Such tragedy. Just a few days ago it was Steve Jobs, now Ritchie. I am so sorry I didn't post this on time. Ritchie is not as famous as Jobs, but I do fee just as important. He is the co-funder of C language, I still remember the feel when I switched from basic to C. C is simple and flexible (so flexible my wife still have nightmares with pointers), I feel in love with it more and more. Of course time moves on and we went to C++/Java/C#, but you can see C in all of them. Attached is a link to The Development of the C Language.
