Namesys vanishes, but Reiser project lives on
Namesys, the company run by murder suspect Hans Reiser, has fallen off the face of the Internet, but the file-system software it was commercializing is still under development by volunteers.
"Commercial activity of Namesys has stopped," said programmer and Namesys employee Edward Shishkin. But he and others continue to develop the Reiser4 file-system software.
"It is pretty active. Many people are interested in this project," Shishkin said. "They help a lot," he added, pointing to fixes needed to work with Linux's virtual file system software and other changes.
