Hans Reiser Testifying He Still Cares for Nina, Missing Seat Explained

Filed under
Reiser

Hans Reiser took the stand Wednesday for the second day at his murder trial here, telling jurors that he still has feelings for his estranged wife he is accused of killing.

"Do you still care about her?" defense attorney William DuBois asked.

"Yes."

For security reasons, an unarmed sheriff's deputy is seated next to Hans Reiser, the popular open source developer. He has been jailed without bail since his Oct. 10, 2006 arrest. His skin is pasty white and his voice is soft, yet mixed with scratches.

As the 44-year-old defendant was taking the stand, his attorney asked him to fix the collar on the dark sports coat he was wearing, the outfit he has adorned since opening statements Nov. 6. One juror watched the gallery and looked to the ground, barely fixing his eyes on the Linux programmer.

Distro Development: Rescatux and Bodhi

  • Rescatux 0.40 beta 9 released
    Many code in the grub side and in the windows registry side has been rewritten so that these new features could be rewritten. As a consequence it will be easier to maintain Rescapp. Finally the chntpw based options which modify the Windows registry now perform a backup of the Windows registry files in the unlikely case you want to undo some of the changes that Rescapp performs. I guess that in the future there will be a feature to be able to restore such backups from Rescapp itself, but, let’s focus on releasing an stable release. It’s been a while since the last one. UEFI feedback is still welcome. Specially if the Debian installation disks work for you but not the Rescatux ones.
  • Bodhi 4.0.0 Updates and July Donation Totals
    Late last month I posted a first alpha look at Bodhi 4.0.0. Work since then has been coming along slowly due to a few unpredictable issues and my own work schedule outside of Bodhi being hectic over the summer. Bodhi 4.0.0 will be happening, but likely not with a stable release until September. I am traveling again this weekend, but am hoping to get out a full alpha release with 32bit and non-PAE discs next week.
