Hans Reiser Murder Trial Resumes After Three-Week Recess

Filed under

The Hans Reiser murder trial resumed here Monday after a three-week holiday recess.

On the stand throughout the entire morning was Oakland Police Department technician Bruce Christensen. He described dozens upon dozens of photos he had taken.

Some were at the Oakland hills house, including an unfinished basement where there were bags of cement. Some were of Nina Reiser's Oakland apartment and abandoned vehicle discovered blocks away. Still, others were of the Oakland house of his mother's boyfriend, where the Linux guru was arrested a month after his 31-year-old wife vanished.

Reiser Trial

Reiser Eluding Surveillance, Officer Testifies

Prosecutor Paul Hora put Oakland Police Department officer Shan Johnson on the stand in a bid to convince jurors that the 44-year-old developer of Linux open-source file systems was acting on a guilty conscience.

Suse: Question. What do you call second-place in ARM enterprise server linux? Answer: Red Hat

ARM TechCon Suse is claiming victory over Red Hat by announcing – and these caveats are all crucial – "the first commercial enterprise Linux distribution optimized for ARM AArch64 architecture servers." In plainer English, Suse has developed an enterprise-grade Linux distribution that runs on 64-bit ARM servers (should you happen to ever find one). Suse claims this software is a world first because it is a finished commercial product, thus beating Red Hat to the punch: Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server for ARM is still only available as a beta-like development preview.
