I believe this deserves a front page post for a while.
Rest in Peace Dennis Ritchie.
For those who don't know who Dennis is, he's one of the Co-Founders of Unix which Every Linux Distro and Mac OS-X owes a LOT to, as without Unix the face of the computing world would be VERY different or possibly non-existant. Dennis was also one of the Pioneers in the programming language C which he was also the Co-Author to "The Definitive Bible to C Programming"
