      He is also behind Multics (Multiplexed Information and Computing Service),
      an influential early time-sharing operating system.
      Dennis Ritchie with Ken Thompson, Two men behind Unix and C.
    • Root of American Technology Supremacy

    • Dennis died on 8th Oct, 2011
      I just heard that, after a long illness, Dennis Ritchie (dmr) died at home this weekend. I have no more information.----------------- --------------------------------------- ---------------------- I trust there are people here who will appreciate the reach of his contributions and mourn his passing appropriately.---------------- --------------------------------------- ----------------------- He was a quiet and mostly private man, but he was also my friend, colleague, and collaborator, and the world has lost a truly great mind.
      -- Rob Pike (as posted on Google Plus)
      The World Lost Another Technology Innovator in
      a week after the demise of Steve Jobs.
    • Media Ignores.
      More sad news - Dennis Ritchie passed away.
      Not covered in the media like the passing of
      Steve Jobs (equally sad) but dmr
      definitely deserves the
      recognition of all the stuff he
      invented, coded, built and provided to the tech world.
      -- WimCoekear Writes on Oracle Blog
      People Feel SAD.
    • Digital Tribute to Dennis Death
      Probably something only the really geeky out there care about but just heard that Dennis Ritchie passed away. He was the inventor of C and therefore as influential as anyone else in computing history.
      It was the primary language I learned and developed on and is to this day probably the one I know best. C, and therefore Ritchie, influences every modern computer language out there. I guarantee you that your life is somehow affected by his influence. Heck, you probably wouldn't be reading this post right now if it weren't for him. 
      /* For Dennis Ritchie */#include <stdio.h>void main ( ){printf("Goodbye World n");printf("RIP Dennis Ritchie");}
