Rift Brewing Between Reiser and His Attorney

Filed under
Reiser

As Linux engineer Hans Reiser's murder trial ended its first day here Tuesday, the rift between the defendant and his attorney appeared to be fracturing even more.

William DuBois, who is Reiser's chief defense attorney, was clearly agitated by his client as proceedings finished up here about 4:30 p.m. Pacific. "My client was once again interrupting me," DuBois told Superior Court Judge Larry Goodman, who was listening to DuBois' motion in a bid to exclude evidence from jurors.

Dubois also told the judge, outside the jury's presence, that he hoped Reiser, who has pleaded not guilty, "keeps his insistences to a minimum."

Moments earlier, the Alameda County jury was dismissed for the day.

The rift between DuBois and Reiser came a day after DuBois told reporters that defending the self-proclaimed genius was "a difficult thing."

After the jury left, Reiser wanted to say something to the judge who was leaving to chambers. "I'm not listening to the defendant," Judge Goodman said and left.

Peppermint 7 Released

Peppermint 7 launched a few days ago. Peppermint is a lightweight Ubuntu-based Linux distribution with an emphasis on speed and simplicity. Although the name is similar to Linux Mint, the projects aren't directly related. Peppermint originally was envisioned as a "spicier" alternative to Mint—whatever that means! Many distros come with a wide assortment of feature-rich applications, and that's great for power users who need those apps. But older machines can struggle to cope with those demanding distros. Peppermint solves the problem by offering a carefully curated suite of web apps that perform tasks traditionally handled by native apps. It's an approach that will be familiar to any Chromebook users reading this article. Read more
