Legal The story of Hans Reiser, the eccentric file system programmer, is a tragic one. The author of the ReiserFS was arrested under suspicion of the murder of his wife Nina Reiser in 2006, and was declared guilty in April 2008. Some still placed doubts about the conviction, stating that he might be innocent. It now seems that all doubt has been quelled, since Alameda County District Attorney Thomas Orloff has revealed that Hans Reiser will disclose the location of Nina's body for a reduced sentence.

The point might be that Nazi Germany did the first working implementation, which either inspired others (highways & Eisenhower) or even became foundation for later works (rockets).

BTW highways - Germans also sort of invented automobiles, without which highways would be pointless ;P (but that's out of scope of Nazi Germans of course ;) )
