Reiser's future now in hands of jury

Filed under
Reiser

The fate of 44-year-old computer engineer Hans Reiser, who is accused of murdering his wife, now rests with the jury. The prosecution finished its rebuttal in the closing arguments to his trial Monday morning.

Alameda County Deputy District Attorney Paul Hora - using puzzle pieces to illustrate the evidence against Reiser - asked jurors for a final time to convict Reiser of either first- or second-degree murder.

"I can give you one single reason for all this evidence," Hora told the jurors. "He murdered her. That explains the entire puzzle."

Hora systematically went through the mounds of circumstantial evidence in the case - from Reiser ripping out his car seat after his wife disappeared to him making no attempts to find her.

Hora asked the jury to come back with a murder conviction, but if they can't decide on first- or second -degree murder, at least come back with a second-degree verdict. Hora said the worst thing that could happen in this case is to come back with no verdict.

"Without a verdict, there is no justice," Hora said.

Hands on with Caine Linux: Pentesting and UEFI compatible

Caine 6.0 is derived from Ubuntu 14.04.1 (64 bit). That is a Long Term Support release, so that is a good thing. It uses the MATE desktop, rather than Unity, which is another really good thing. The ISO image can be obtained from their Downloads page (duh), and is relatively large (2.68GB). Read more

Linux Mint 17.1 finally makes MATE's fancy Compiz graphics easy to use

Linux Mint isn’t chasing touch interfaces, rethinking the way we use the desktop, or enacting any other grand experiment. It’s just a polished, modern Linux desktop system—and that’s why people love it. Linux Mint 17.1 (codenamed “Rebecca”) is on the brink of being released, and it continues the Linux Mint mission of refining the interface we use every day. Read more

Ubuntu MATE is a heavyweight among the lightweight distributions

What kind of operating system would you run on your PC? One that hogs resources leaving you with just enough to do your work or one that ‘glides’ over the resources leaving almost everything for you to use? I would certainly choose the latter. And if I ran a business, where a penny saved is a penny earned, I would be even more conservative about it. I use Arch Linux with KDE Plasma on my main machine. This combination gives me a fully optimized base OS with a desktop environment (DE) that is known for being the most feature-rich. However, I am always on the lookout for a DE that can run efficiently on less-powerful (aka less expensive) hardware, with an easy to manage OS. Read more
