Linux "Hans Reiser is waiting for me, standing on the other side of an imitation-wood table. The room is small, the concrete walls bare. A guard locks the steel door from the outside. There is no sound. Reiser is wearing the red jumpsuit of a prisoner in solitary confinement, though he has been allowed to meet with me in this chilly visiting room. There was a time when he was known as a cantankerous but visionary open source programmer. His work was funded by the government; he was widely credited (and sometimes reviled) for rethinking the structure of the Linux operating system. Now he is known as prisoner BFP563."

The software community knows Hans Reiser because his ReiserFS and it is very sad seeing him in those enormous personal problems.

Anyway, OSNews intends to be a technical/speculative news site, and referencing to that kind of news about Mr. Reiser has a morbid taste.

I do not like the reality told in that sarcastic "Sarcastic = TRUE;" way.
