Hans Reiser Arrested On Suspicion of Murder


Walo berita ini basišŸ˜¦ tapi aq baru tau hari ini lho.. soalnya dah lama ga join di #freebsd irc hwhahahaha 5x.

Many readers wrote about the arrest today of Hans Reiser, author of ReiserFS, by Oakland, CA police on suspicion of murdering his estranged wife

. From the San Francisco Chronicle:

“Hans Reiser, 42, was taken into custody at 11 a.m., hours after Oakland police and FBI technicians searched his home in the Oakland hills. His estranged wife, Nina Reiser, 31, has been missing since Sept. 3, when she dropped off the couple’s son and daughter at his home on the 6900 block of Exeter Drive… Police made the arrest based on circumstantial evidence and have not found Nina Reiser’s body, [Hans Reiser’s attorney] Du Bois said. ‘I have no idea what the circumstantial evidence is,’ he said. ‘When I hear what the evidence is against him, I’ll make a decision as to whether he’ll talk to them.'”

kimvette writes, “While the disappearance (and possible murder) of his wife is tragic, Linux users will wonder where this will leave Reiser 4. If Reiser is found guilty, will Novell or IBM pick up the pieces and finish up Reiser 4 for inclusion in the kernel or is this the end of the Reiser filesystem project? Will there be any future for the Reiser filesystem, and if Hans is found guilty and the project is continued, will the project be renamed to avoid notoriety?”

lisah writes “With the announcement of Hans Reiser’s arrest this week, many people have been wondering what this will mean for his company, Namesys, and the future of his filesystem work. According to a report at Linux.com, employees at Namesys are circling their wagons and plan to continue working on the project ‘in the short term.’ One employee admits, ‘we are rather shaken and stressed at the moment, although I cannot say we didn’t see it coming.'”

VSquared56 writes, “Novell announced a shift in the default filesystem from ReiserFS to ext3 for users of its SuSE Enterprise Linux. This news comes shortly after Hans Reiser’s arrest, though Novell says the decision was being considered long before. Though Novell will continue supporting ReiserFS 3, it claims ext3 is more stable and will ‘soon’ match performance with the newer ReiserFS 4. What implications will this have for SuSE users, and ReiserFS’s future as a whole?”
