|Passing of Dennis Ritchie Should Be Showing on Main News Page||3||13:27, 16 October 2011|
Considering the importance of Dr. Ritchie's contributions to the world of computing, his passing should have received first-class treatment as a major news article. A strong case can be made that his contributions far outweigh those of Steve Jobs.
The fact that he hasn't been reported widely in the other mainstream news media should be disregarded. In an environment like this one dependent so much on computing technology, people should be especially aware of the significance of this story.
Anyone bothering to trace Dr. Ritchie's contributions and their effect on computing environments such as this one should be able to understand why he was so important.
One of the main perpetrators of Sloppy and Painful Computing is gone at last! This is WONDERFUL news..
This is not trolling, but my honest opinion!
