Thrid Option

Must agree with third option should be there as either don't know/care or no opinion.

Plus innocent until proven guilty even if most civilisations work the other way around according to Daniel Jackson SG1.

As much as I have been waiting to see who would be first to put up this poll, obviously a 'major' site won't do it.
No insult to tuxmachines one of the best sites i visit daily.
Sorry to say but imho i think this is in a bit bad taste and kills the festive atmosphere a tad.

Sorry to pull away from the poll but would be interested to try openSuse as soon as they support reiser4, and I am tempted to build another LFS system again soon on reiser4 to see how it feels Smile

Re: Thrid Option

Speaking of OpenSUSE, I tried it on a spare ThinkPad.

I had to kill the whole Windows installation for OpenSUSE 10.2 to install. Otherwise, it threw up some error. (LOL! A bit of irony, don't you think? OpenSUSE install kills Windows!)

Anyway, I tried it for a week, and I don't think its for me. The new menu solution seems OK. I'm more in favour of Arch Linux now. (Fast and much more responsive compared to "easy to use" distros like Ubuntu and OpenSUSE).

Anyway, I don't know if Hans is guilty or not. But what I do want to know, is where is his wife's body? Have they found it?

He's definitely guilty

It is obvious that he is guilty. Now whether he will get convicted or not is a totally different story. I just hope someone will pick up reiserfs development afterwards.

Hans Reiser's Guilt

I can't believe so many folks think he's innocent. I thought it was obvious from the start, even before we learned of Nina's blood in the front passenger compartment of his car and missing front seat, that he was guilty as sin. And what about his handy "get rid of dead body" kit in the trunk? Are you folks even following the story?

re: HR Guilt

I think you need a third voting option: "don't know, don't care".

I'm always amazed at how these "celebrity" crimes garner so much attention. Unless you personally know the victim or the accused, what does it really matter? And by "know" I mean actually had two-way real-time conversations, hung out with, etc. - not "I saw them on tv or read about them on the net".

With 6+ BILLION people on the planet, a very large number of them die every day, and a portion of that large number are murdered.

Where's the press for those people? The sadness, the grief, the outrage?

People live - people die and unless its you, part of your family, or someone in your social group - does it really matter?

re: HR Guilt

I agree with you for the most part. Even besides the Linux geeks, this is a big story, but not because he is a creator of a filesystem. SFGate.com could care less what he does for a living. I don't believe they ever mentioned anything other than the fact that he is a programmer. So.. it's just a big story regardless... for what reason, I don't know.

That aside, this -could- affect a lot of Linux users who use that filesystem. Chances are even if he is found not guilty, I can't see the FS simply resuming as if though nothing ever happened.

Hopefully it will all be over with soon. Course, I thought the same thing with Ubuntu and look at it now.

Early Ubuntu 14.04 vs. Ubuntu 16.04 Intel Xeon E5 Benchmarks

This morning I posted some Ubuntu 14.04 vs. 16.04 LTS Radeon graphics benchmarks while if open-source AMD graphics driver evolution doesn't get you excited, in this article are results from other non-graphics benchmarks in comparing the Ubuntu 14.04 vs. 16.04 performance for these long-term support releases in their current form. For getting an idea how the overall Ubuntu Linux performance has evolved over the past two years for those solely riding Long-Term Support releases, I compared the performance of Ubuntu 14.04.0 to Ubuntu 16.04 LTS in its current daily ISO form. The tests were done on the same Intel Xeon E5-2687W v3 (Haswell) system with MSI X99S SLI PLUS motherboard, 16GB of RAM, and AMD FirePro V7900 graphics.

Top Android apps for your Raspberry Pi

Mostly, our tutorials are about completing a specific project and reaching a particular goal. However, this time we’re doing something a bit different. We are showing you some Android apps that you can use along with your Ras Pi. These apps aren’t tied to particular projects – you can use them whenever and as often as you like – but we think they can add something to your whole experience with the Pi. Read more

These 3 things are trying to kill Linux containers

For nearly two years, Linux containers have dominated the world of enterprise IT, and for good reason — among others, they take on issues that virtualization simply cannot within application development and computing at scale and allow for the enterprise world to truly embrace concepts like devops and microservices (the Service Oriented Architecture dream from years gone by). That sound you hear is IT vendors stampeding towards the container bandwagon, but, as with every emerging tech trend, this isn’t always a good thing, as not everyone is walking the walk, regardless of what the business might actually say.
