Loosing 2 kings in 3 days...How pathetic !!!

One more legend left us on 8-oct-2011. If Steve Jobs was the king of the visible then this shy but remarkable guy was the king of what is largely invisible. Can we acknowledge the following facts like following :

- Windows was once written in C.
- Unix was build on C.
- Web servers are written in C, and if they’re not, they’re written in Java or C++, which are C derivatives, or    Python or Ruby, which are implemented in C.
- All of the network hardware running these programs I can almost guarantee were written in C.

By now you must have guessed that I am talking about non other than Dennis Ritchie- Father of the C programming language.

RIP drm ....you will be remembered as one of the pioneers in history of computers.
