I bet he won't get nearly as much media time as S.Jobs' death, and as a computer geek, I find that sad.

Oh, you're sooo right, alswaiter ... thanks for pointing to this ... :o

Honor to whom honor is due ... I found a very nice tribute to Mr. Ritchie
with a nice old photo together with Ken Thompson at Bell Labs (I believe) ...
All interested, please read this ...

I send my deepest heartfelt wishes and thoughts and my sympathy to his family,
former co-workers and friends around the world and I embrace you all in Love and Light ...

Have a bright journey home, Mr. Ritchie, and thank you for leaving an awesome legacy behind
where upon so much in the world is based on that unites us all even further and will even go on
inspiring great minds to create and invent new technologies etc. for the benefit of us all in the future ... :)
