Dude, Bill graduated from college in 1975. C was first noticed in the
wild in 1972. Are you telling us, that he was the VP or
whatever senior position at Bell labs, before he graduated?

He might have been at a senior position in Google, when products like
Chrome were designed and made. That does not make him the person who
'invented' C or C++ or Unix. 

Please get your facts right.
