Hans Reiser Murder Trial Delayed 2 Days

Filed under
Reiser

The Hans Reiser murder trial was delayed for two days Monday. Prosecutor Paul Hora is unable to attend the proceedings here in Alameda County Superior Court until Wednesday. His wife had a baby boy Saturday.

The trial of the Linux programmer, who is accused of killing his estranged wife Nina Reiser, began Nov. 6. There have been about 50 witnesses. Hora was expected to rest his case this week, and now that appears unlikely.

The defendant, 44, the operator of Namesys, might take the stand when his attorneys put a defense.

Poor Hans

Not to beat a dead horse :dead:

But this is hardly a fine example of "Innocent UNTIL proven guilty".

It's all well and nice that the Prosecutor can take time off for a personal matter, but meanwhile Reiser is locked in Jail with no freedom, and has yet to be proven guilty of anything but having once been married to the missing person.

If the overzealous DA can't convince the jury with a preponderance of evidence that Reiser is guilty of murder (even though there is no proof the person is dead, let alone murdered, let alone murdered by Reiser), I hope Reiser files a HUGE lawsuit against the clowns that started this circus.

Cloud convenience is killing the open source database

Open source has never been more important or, ironically, irrelevant. As developers increasingly embrace the cloud to shorten time to market, they're speeding past open source, making it even harder to build an open source business. After all, if open source were largely a way for developers to skirt legal and purchasing departments to get the software they needed when they needed it, the cloud ups that convenience to the nth degree. In Accel's annual business review, the vaunted venture capital firm writes: "'Product' is no longer just the bits of software, it's also how the software is sold, supported, and made successful." The cloud is changing the way all software is consumed, including open source. Read more

Why the operating system matters even more in 2017

Operating systems don't quite date back to the beginning of computing, but they go back far enough. Mainframe customers wrote the first ones in the late 1950s, with operating systems that we'd more clearly recognize as such today—including OS/360 from IBM and Unix from Bell Labs—following over the next couple of decades.
