John was well-known for his impactful teachings and for his line-by-line commentary of the Unix V6 source code, also referred to as the ‘Lions Book’ which became the ‘The Most Famous Suppressed Manuscript in Computer History. This year marks the 45th anniversary of the Commentary, and the 25th anniversary of the book being officially published.
