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."

REISER: Hmm, vista pwns.
REISER: CRAP!
REISER: Linux will be destroyed and we will be shown for the shysters we are.
REISER gets knife and repeatly stabs wife out of despair.

I know I know, but that's what everyone would have said if Bill gates or Steve balmer or anybody at MS was in this position, so whatever.

Do not be silly, of course Bill Gates would never kill his wife if Windows went belly up....

Now, that monkey-boy, chair throwing psycho Ballmer, that is a different story. He will go on a killing spree, one on par with Postal II.

Now to the article.

I believe he did it.
I used ReiserFS too, but will not be sad to see it dropped from all distros.

Not because the author is an alleged murderer, but because it hosed my system. Once bitten twice shy.

Obviously, Reiser beat him to it. I guess linux doesn't drive Balmer as bad as Windows drives Reiser?
