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."

Reiser4 Implements Mirror & Failover Support

Edward Shishkin, one of the last remaining Reiser4 developers and the one who has been leading this out-of-tree file-system the past few years, has implemented logical volumes support with support for mirrors (in effect, RAID 0) and failover support at the file-system level. Shishkin quietly announced on Sunday, "Reiser4 will support logical (compound) volumes. For now we have implemented the simplest ones - mirrors. As a supplement to existing checksums it will provide a failover - an important feature, which will reduce number of cases when your volume needs to be repaired by fsck." Read more

Exactly What Is OpenStack? Red Hat's Rich Bowen Explains

You've probably heard of OpenStack. It's in the tech news a lot, and it's an important open source project. But what exactly is it, and what is it for? Rich Bowen of Red Hat provided a high-level view of OpenStack as a software project, an open source foundation, and a community of organizations in his talk at LinuxCon North America. OpenStack is a software stack that went from small to industry darling at warp speed. It has three major components: The compute service runs the virtual machines (VMs), and it has a networking service and a storage service, plus a dashboard to run everything. OpenStack is only six years old, and was born as a solution devised by Rackspace and NASA to solve a specific problem. Read more

The Linux Foundation Partners with Girls in Tech to Increase Diversity in Open Source

One of the great strengths of open source is that it provides opportunities for everyone. Regardless of background, age, gender, race, ethnicity, nationality, sexual orientation or religion, everyone can benefit from and contribute to some of the most important technologies ever developed. Yet we know that many groups remain underrepresented in the open source community, which is why The Linux Foundation engages in efforts such as providing diversity scholarships for our training and events and sponsoring organizations such as Women Who Code, Code.org, Blacks in Technology, All Star Code and more.
