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.

would you use work of Charles Manson or maybe Hitler? Sure it's not really comparable but I do think you know what I'm thinking of. That said, it's hard to work with some stuff and forget about the person behind it. So the code isn't the murderer, but ...


... and Hans Reiser is not Hitler.

This is really one of the most pointless Hitler references I have read in a long time.
