Unix or UNIX?
Line 2238 Comment!

In addition to the well-known team of Thompson/Ritchie/Kernighan, other people at Bell Labs have had important direct or indirect contributions to Unix. This contribution has been continued toward the next generation of operating systems from Bell Labs, Plan 9 and Inforno.
Rob Pike
When did you last see an exciting non-commercial demo? [5]

Rob is quite a multidimensional person: A genius programmer, an Olympics medal winner, a telescope designer, and... well known for his appearances on ``Late Night with David Letterman''. He is the coauthor of a couple of great books introduced before: The UNIX Programming Environment and The Practice of Programming, and finally, do not forget to try his cheesecake!

Rob's home page specially check out his paper, Irrelevance of Software Research.
