    The tributes to Dennis Ritchie(The C man who booted Unix who died on October 12, 2011‎ at the age of 70)won't match the river of praise that spilled out over the web after the death of Steve Jobs. But they should. And then some.


    "When Steve Jobs died, there was a huge outcry, and that was very moving and justified. But Dennis had a bigger effect, and the public doesn't even know who he is," says Rob Pike, the programming legend and current Googler who spent 20 years working across the hall from Ritchie at the famed Bell Labs.
