General Unix The groundbreaking work he did with Ken Thompson led to the operating system behind everything from set-top boxes to the iPhone, but who sings the praises of the late Dennis Ritchie?

Richie is "lucky" that he passed away just after Jobs, otherwise his death would have gone unnoticed by the mainstream news media, as it is most British news outlets made reference to his contribution to the "iPhone"... A lame epitaph at best considering the value of his unix and c contributions to the world, but better than nothing.
