The C Programming Language by Kernigan and Ritchie

I read this book in mid 80's and it was inspirational to me. At that time I had an Amiga, with Aztec C Compiler and used this book to travel through the mechanics of programming. Very well explained and not too much technical (… sure?). But for me, this book was a trap, because C is in itself a very hard matter to learn well and those guys put it as a if it was like a stroll on a farm and not like climbing the Everest.
The day you do not learn something new, is a wasted day!

On which operating systems are you writing code?
Let's see if things have changed since we last ran this. "writing code" meaning editing, building, and running the code on that OS.
