Prosecutor: Linux Engineer Reiser Abused Son, Murdered Wife

Filed under
Reiser

Hans Reiser, the popular open-source Linux engineer, traumatized his 5-year-old young son with violent video games and horror movies, prosecutor Paul Hora told jurors in the opening of Reiser's murder trial.

Reiser, wearing a dark suit at the defendant's table, became agitated as the prosecutor recounted to jurors those child-abuse accusations that his wife, Nina, made in divorce court three years ago. All the while, Reiser kept peppering his lawyer with questions whispered into his ear, and the lawyer at one point slumped his forehead to the table during the first hours of trial that is expected to see dozens of witnesses and last several weeks.

The five-woman, seven-man jury listened intently to prosecutor Hora, who told the panel that Reiser, 43, murdered his 31-year-old wife and could never forget what she wrote in that divorce filing. "Like one of those dogs with lock jaw," Hora said, "he never let go."

Now, with the introduction of libreboot, a truly open source boot firmware, the dream is close to fruition. The $730 laptop is a bog standard piece of hardware but it contains only open source software. The OS, Debian, is completely open source and to avoid closed software the company has added an Atheros Wi-Fi dongle with open source drivers rather than use the built-in Wi-Fi chip. Read more
