Where Steve Jobs might be the person that was almost a god to some Apple lovers, Dennis Ritchie is the same for most programmers.

The inventor of C, and it's children C#, C++ and embedded C, has died. The man also did a lot for the Linux community and without his work, we would not have Windows, Linux, Apple, Microsoft, you name it. No program can exist without his writing.

/* For Dennis Ritchie */
#include <stdio.h>
#include <main.h> /* Just to be sure*/
main () {
    printf("Goodbye world.\n We will miss you father");
    return 0;

That is perfect Sphere, nothing else could be said that pays home-age to the man IMHO. *bows head in respect*
