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.

This makes 2 Tech giants. So there will likely be a third.

Wishing the death of someone just because you disagree with his company's products. That is kind of extreme douchebaggery, don't you think?
