I wish there was the same public recognition of Dennis Ritchie's death, and his incredible legacy, but I'm afraid it's not going to happen. He, Ken Thompson, and others at Bell Labs, created an infrastructure that has stood the test of time. I'm sure Unix will still be here in one form or another long after other operating systems have come and gone. But Steve Jobs, love him or hate him ( or be conflicted about him, as I am), was a rock star. It doesn't make sense, but it doesn't have to.
