General Unix Twitter is currently buzzing about the death of Dennis Ritchie, the visionary creator of UNIX and C, among other things. We hope it's just a false rumor. Story developing, we will be updating. Update: Unfortunately, it seems to be confirmed. Rob Pike, co-creator of the Plan 9 and Inferno OSes, who has worked with Ritchie in the past, and he's currently working for Google's GO language, posted this.

It is the only text book i completed without any effort.RIP Sir.


Yes, his 'C' book is magnificent. Too many computing books today are just filler, print outs of man pages or just waffle.
