The father of the C programming language and co-creator of the Unix® operating system died last week at the age of 70.
A TRUE computer pioneer, and one of the last TRUE old-school hackers.
Devs of the world owe you mr Ritchie.
Thank you for bringing the concept of "Open Systems" to the world. Without it, I would undoubtly be locked-in with a major proprietary software vendor.
Instead, I am free to use whatever I want, in any way I want, on any device I want. Thanks to open systems, open protocols, open projects and open source :)
Many thanks for your contributions Mr. Richie, forever grateful.
