Hans Reiser Murder Trial: The Vilification Defense Begins

Filed under
Reiser

The vilification of Nina Reiser is commencing in earnest here at Hans Reiser's murder trial.

Hans Reiser, the 44-year-old popular Linux open source programmer, is on trial here accused of killing his wife in 2006. After three months of the prosecution's case, Hans Reiser's defense opened Tuesday with verbal salvos portraying wife Nina Reiser as the not-so-perfect woman -- in stark contradiction to how the prosecution and dozens of its witnesses had described her.

On Tuesday, jurors were told of an affair, of embezzlement allegations, that she advertised herself in a European bride catalog, and that she became pregnant with the couple's first of two children before they married in 1999.

  • Semi-Official Google Drive Support For Linux Arrives, What's Next?
    Three years ago, when a user would attempt to download the Google Drive Sync Client, Google would bring them to the appropriate download page, which of course, is based off of the operating system that user is running on. If a user would attempt to download the Google Drive Sync Client while running on Linux, they’d land on a page where the message reads: “Not (yet) supported for Linux.” So, what’s the deal with Google not developing a sync client for Linux users, seeing as to how they build a lot of their things using Linux? There’s one simple answer to that, unfortunately. Windows is mainstream, so a lot of their focus is put on what a majority of people use. The bigger the market, the more money in their pockets, of course. But don’t fear, change is near!
