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."

"who was into BSM and admitted to killing eight people"

So, this guy admitted to killing 8 people, effectively making him a serial killer, but he's just walking around outside and is not in police custody? Yeah, right.

agreed... That is far fetched at best. Sounds like Reiser may be getting a bit delusional..
