Hans Reiser Murder Trial Delayed 2 Days

Filed under
Reiser

The Hans Reiser murder trial was delayed for two days Monday. Prosecutor Paul Hora is unable to attend the proceedings here in Alameda County Superior Court until Wednesday. His wife had a baby boy Saturday.

The trial of the Linux programmer, who is accused of killing his estranged wife Nina Reiser, began Nov. 6. There have been about 50 witnesses. Hora was expected to rest his case this week, and now that appears unlikely.

The defendant, 44, the operator of Namesys, might take the stand when his attorneys put a defense.

Poor Hans

Not to beat a dead horse :dead:

But this is hardly a fine example of "Innocent UNTIL proven guilty".

It's all well and nice that the Prosecutor can take time off for a personal matter, but meanwhile Reiser is locked in Jail with no freedom, and has yet to be proven guilty of anything but having once been married to the missing person.

If the overzealous DA can't convince the jury with a preponderance of evidence that Reiser is guilty of murder (even though there is no proof the person is dead, let alone murdered, let alone murdered by Reiser), I hope Reiser files a HUGE lawsuit against the clowns that started this circus.

Debian 9 Review: Stable Like Ever, Better Than Most

Debian is one of the oldest and most famous Linux distributions of all time. Its development started back in 1993 by its founder Ian Murdock who passed away in 2015. It’s also known to be the mother-distribution of tens of other Linux distributions such as Ubuntu. Debian has a strict policy on software packages. It only ships free software by default. It doesn’t even ship non-free firmware and drivers. If you want, you can enable the non-free package repository later to install those packages. But you won’t find it there by default. Debian is well-known for its stability. They don’t ship new updates to users unless it was tested. Which is why you may notice some very old package versions when using Debian. It’s correct that they are old, but they are also tested and secure. Most discovered vulnerabilities get patched in Debian in a matter of hours or few days. Those users who would like to get latest and most updated software could switch to using the testing or unstable branch. Both contain more modern software according to a different policy. The effort which is being done by the Debian project for each release is huge. Currently, they offer 25000 source packages and 51000 binary packages. Getting all of those software from upstream projects, packaging them, testing them, debugging issues and fixing them is definitely not something you hear about everyday.

Liri – Loves me, loves me not … at all

What does the world of Linux need more? Desktop environments? Nope. Ah, well, you’d be surprised, because a fresh new challenger appears! Its name is Liri, and it is the presentation layer for the namesake operating system being baked in the forges of community creativity as we speak. Sounds potentially interesting, but then we must be wary. I’ve trawled through the obscure, uncharted waters of Budgie, Razor-Qt and more recently, and with much greater attention to detail, LXQt, and in all of these cases, I was left rather dissatisfied with the end product. Not enough cohesion, quality, future roadmap, and most importantly, the finesse that you expect from polished, professional products. Then again, building a desktop environment is a huge undertaking, probably even more complex than spinning a new distro, and so, it’s not a coincidence that there are few serious contenders in this space. But Liri comes with enticing artwork, a promise of Material Design for the desktop, and so here we are, trying to get the first feel of what it does. Read more
