I really hope his casket has an Intel Inside sticker on it. RIP

Moore's Law is named after him:

Massively influential in forming the world we live in today. Worth perusing his Wikipedia if you know nothing about him other than being the namesake of Moore's law. I admire that beyond cofounding one of the most important companies ever, he was also an excellent physicist as well.

And one of the top philanthropists. He and Betty make the world a better place.

The Moore of the Moore’s Law, no less.

In addition to Moore’s seminal role in founding two of the world’s pioneering technology companies, he famously forecast in 1965 that the number of transistors on an integrated circuit would double every year – a prediction that came to be known as Moore’s Law.

“All I was trying to do was get that message across, that by putting more and more stuff on a chip we were going to make all electronics cheaper,” Moore said in a 2008 interview.

I would say 'Sick burn!' but I'm too busy extinguishing the fire caused by my Pentium 4, sorry for that.

Moore's Law was widely overapplied beyond his initial observation, but still was a remarkably reliable rule of thumb for many types of exponential technological growth, even if eventually it became aspirational to keep it going as long as possible.

What a life, born the same year Shottky published his findings on semiconductors, and lived to see and help make possible all of this.

Thank you Mr. Moore for bringing in this Science Reality. Rest in peace.

One of the absolute titans of the computer industry.

I was actually surprised to see someone with such early impact was still around. It must have been amazing to see everything that was built upon his early work.

Lived to see his prediction remaining valid. He’ll be positively incorrigible in the afterlife.

I will be forever grateful for all the work you have done.

Few people could say something like "You know that law of Moore that is always on newspaper, that's me" , not that he would have said it, but he could.
