Defense wraps up closing argument in Hans Reiser trial

Filed under
Reiser

The defense attorney for a software programmer accused of killing his estranged wife told jurors Monday the prosecution hasn't proved the woman is dead, let alone murdered.

"You're being asked to convict this person of murder ... when you don't even know if there was a death," William Du Bois said as he made his final argument to jurors.

Du Bois said there's no evidence indicating Hans Reiser committed a crime, but if jurors disagree, then it was at most manslaughter, meaning it was committed in the heat of passion.

Reiser, known as the creator of the ReiserFS computer file system, testified that he had nothing to do with his wife's disappearance and she left his house alive.

Migrating to Linux: Network and System Settings

Linux gives you a lot of control over network and system settings. On your desktop, Linux lets you tweak just about anything on the system. Most of these settings are exposed in plain text files under the /etc directory. Here I describe some of the most common settings you’ll use on your desktop Linux system. A lot of settings can be found in the Settings program, and the available options will vary by Linux distribution. Usually, you can change the background, tweak sound volume, connect to printers, set up displays, and more. While I won't talk about all of the settings here, you can certainly explore what's in there. Read more
