Linux Programmer's Defense Seizes on Confused Aftermath of Nina Reiser's Disappearance

Filed under
Reiser

Hans Reiser's defense attorney Thursday seized on the confusion in the immediate aftermath of Nina Reiser's disappearance to bolster the theory that the woman disappeared last year and was not murdered by her husband as prosecutors allege.

Defense attorney William DuBois grilled Anthony Zografos, the man Nina was dating when she vanished Sept. 3, 2006 after she dropped off her two young children to her estranged husband, the maker of once popular Linux filing systems distributed by his Oakland company, Namesys.

"When Nina originally did not respond to her voice mail messages, isn't it true you thought she may have left, to just take a break and get away?" DuBois asked Zografos, who was on the witness stand for the second day.

"I did not conclude that, actually."

"I'm asking you whether your voice messages to Nina reflect the fact that…Nina may have taken off on her own, to take a break?"

Moments later, the boyfriend replied: "I was hoping she was alive and perhaps she had left."

No one knows when it will happen. No one knows the magnitude. Read more

Android Marshmallow on PC Falls Flat

The Android-x86 Project eventually may become a viable operating system alternative for your desktop and laptops computers, but it's not there yet. You will have to wait a while for the developers to fix a number of failures with the latest release upgrading Android-x86 to Marshmallow 6.0.1. The developers late this summer released the first stable version of Android-x86 6.0, codenamed "Marshmallow." Android-x86 lets you run the Android OS with the Google Chrome browser on your desktop and laptop computers, rather than buying one of the qualified Chromebooks with the Google Play Store features bolted on.
