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 he was guilty, I said it from day one. His reputation and that of his filesystem has been tarnished. The reputation of Linux as a whole has been damaged. Im thinking of switching to BSD or Windows. She was a beautiful woman who had much to offer the world and her children.

I personally hope for this monsterous act he gets the death penalty.

Why would you switch OS just because of this? Think rationally for a moment, please!

There are worse punishments; death is the easy way out.

I recently ordered a Mac. This was so disheartning and a real wake up call that a Linux developer could do such a monsterous act. I am eBaying off my Linux PC's and I will be on a Mac from now on. Goodbye Linux forever.
