  1. NEWS - Hans Reiser, Found GUILTY of first degree murder. Open Source fallout begins.

    "Computer programmer Hans Reiser was arrogant while testifying in his murder
    trial and never showed any compassion for his estranged wife, one of many
    factors that led to his conviction on first-degree murder, a member of the
    jury said today."

    "Reiser FS: The open source file system fallout"

    SuSE and Debian use ReiserFS version 3, a stable and proven version of the
    code that has been sitting mostly fallow for some time, and is maintained
    with bugfixes on a best effort basis. Prior to the whirlwind and highly
    publicized trial, Hans Reiser and his small team were working on Reiser4,
    but much of this development grinded to a halt due to his legal woes, and
    the project is more than likely to die an unfortunate death by virtue of its
    lead programmer having to serve a minimum 25 year life sentence in prison.

    From the SuSE and Debian perspective, this is an obviously unacceptable
    state of affairs. The OpenSuSE project has already moved its distribution to
    use the ext3 file system, the most common one used on Linux systems.
    However, it is far from the fastest and most reliable of the Linux file
    systems and development of its replacement ext4, is also underway. Ted Ts'o,
    one of the original programmers of ext3 and its predecessor, ext2, is
    leading the ext4 project, and is employed by IBM. ext4 shows a great deal of
    promise, but it is unlikely that the main commercial enterprise
    distributions - such as RHEL and SLES - will adopt its initial release for
    production use.

    Why is that? I should think he would have plenty of time to work on it!

    All kidding aside - why can't he continue to work on Reiser FS?

    - He'll have plenty of time.
    - He would truly be doing this because it's something he's interested in.
    - He'll need something to do to pass the time.
    - By all accounts Reiser is a smart person. He'll need something to keep
    his mind active.

    Is there some sort of new rule or regulation that prohibits prisoners from
    using computers?

    Correct. No body has been found. (5 seconds with Google would confirm this.)

    Is this relevant and if not, why do you ask?

    Am I correct in stating that you didn't think to read the article?

    This Reiser guy has all the character traits of Roy Schestowitz in my
    opinion.

    Great. And all of the existing customers/users that are running ReiserFS
    will no longer be receiving updates, bug fixes or enhancements. The Reiser
    FS they use is now becoming obsolete fast forcing them to migrate their data
    to another file system that is going to be supported.

    Definitely. It's just a matter of time before Roy Schestowitz gets arrested
    for mailing letter-bombs to Microsoft or something.

    He certainly has several:

    1. Narcissistic.
    2. Basement dweller (the police caught him hiding in his mother's basement)
    3. Sponging off his parents ( see #2)
    4. Obsessed with Linux.
    5. In total denial.
    6. A liar.

    I suppose violent is one trait Roy Schesotwitz and Hans Reiser don't have
    in common though.

    Making a Linux nut case like Reiser use Windows is probably the equivalent
    of "water-boarding".

    Get ready for the "cruel and unusual punishment" suits to be filed!

    What so he can groom another Eastern European woman on the net and
    murder her in a gristly fashion?

    He is going to prison to be punished - not as a free replacement for his
    mothers basement.
