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."

You don't have to kill your wife to create a killer file system :-)

Anyway, everything is speculation unless there is hard evidences. The body will eventually be found and the CSI may be able to find some clues from the dead body.

I studied his idea and find that the file system constantly change to make efficient use of the disk space. That may means a lot of back end processing which might make front end system slower.
