should have the guy that moved C to C++ should have been included ( may have, been listed but uncredited ) They did leave BK out and I think he belongs as well as developer of Knoppix. They both added a lot to present day uses of linux.
Bjarne Strousup and Klaus Knopper... I agree about Klaus, though I'm not a big fan of C++ in part because of some of Bjarne's design decisions, but many C++ devs would disagree and other language fans would choose their own champions. _________________ Check out my github repositories.

Lol I would not choose c++ if given the choice. Paid to write or better extended a c++ program that was around 25 K lines of code. However moving C from a slight improvement of its machine language like start to C++ I consider a nearly impossible task. After becoming a c++ expert in a short time I came to like how the orginal coder designed it. He left to work on Visual Basic project Sadly he left the company for good and left a VB nightmare for me to inherent. Which turned me into a reluctant Visual Basic coder, It was a wild ride to move between IBM rexx and small talk coder on OS/2 to C++ then VB for the same company.
