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.

I knew there'd be a lively discussion when I saw that one of the OSNews articles was about Hans Reiser. And I wasn't disappointed. Personally I think that until he actually shows them a body, his conviction is still unsafe and it is not 100% certain that he committed the crime. We aren't out of the woods yet on this one...
