Hello, just thought I would start a nice discussion dedicated to some of the more publicy un-sung heros of our digital age. Basicly, who are your favourate programmers/computer scientists and why? Mine are:
John Carmack - He set the bar for modern computer gaming and shaped how modern game developers create their games, even if alot of them do abuse this gift with games like Call of Duty of Halo.
Bjarne Stroustrup - Because without him we wouldent be here on a C++ forum
Dennis Ritchie - For doing almost everything
Richard Stallman - For launching the GNU project, and I share his views on software freedom
steve jobs is better then any1 because he invented the graphical gui interface before any1 else and he revolutionized the computing world if it wasnt 4 him we would still b using command line!. R.I.P steve jobs always will be best innovator in computing.
