It makes me so angry, that his death is nearly ignored, while we owe him so much for what he did for our lovely virtual world.

The most awkward thing about this is that Steve Jobs is being praised for "creating" (or shall I say "owning the company that made") iThings, while even the software that was used to design those devices must have been coded in C, not to mention that nearly everything we use is coded in C, or in a language that evolved from C (even the entire JAVA language was based on it, if I'm correct). And then we haven't talked about the impact of Unix on the industry yet... Too bad I never knew him. R.I.P. D.R.
