Sad story. It's so sad to see good talent get waisted in jail. Someone
must be very very pleased here. As to the killing of his wife. It's clear
from the start that Hans Reiser was and still is undergoing a very nasty
harassment, from the same evil forces. Looking at his picture you see
that the level of harassment doesn't even allow him to fix his own tie.
Why all this crap? I guess his reiserfs software must be very good.
