comment Why does void in C mean not void?
Regarding why they reused void: an obvious reason would be to avoid introducing a new keyword (and potentially breaking existing programs). Had they introduced a special keyword (e.g. unknown), then void* would be a meaningless (and possibly illegal) construct, and unknown would be legal only in the form of unknown*.
