    Jobs did "nothing" compared to Ritchie, the legacy from Ritchie has influenced almost every piece of software, at least the major ones.

    Guys, please, this thread is dedicated for Ritchie. Let's not discuss S.J. here. De mortuis aut bene aut nihil.

    Wouldn't that be better as: printf("goodbye world\n");

    At any rate, rest in piece Ritchie. Your contribution to computing will long be remembered.

    Ah man, this sucks!

    In any case. AmigaOS is going to be revived in 200-400$/euro/pound PPC netbooks. Excelent articles for the interested:
    http://arstechnica.com/software/news...gaos41-ars.ars
    http://arstechnica.com/hardware/news...iga-part-1.ars

    The reason I'm stating the Amiga part is that the world still has hope for the good old spirit and hopefully new pioneers arrive at the spot that we can honor!

    PS: Crap! I meant to say dmr istead of rms

    He was just like a pillar in the field of computers. His imagination made us proud.

    I know the C language, and like it very much! What's a great pity to the world...
