Reiser's children file wrongful death suit against father

Filed under
Reiser

The two children of computer programmer Hans Reiser have filed a wrongful death lawsuit against their father in connection with the murder of their mother, Nina Reiser.

The lawsuit claims Rory and Niorline Reiser — who currently live in Russia with their maternal grandmother Irina Sharanova — "have suffered a tremendous loss, including the loss of love, support, companionship, comfort, affection and society of Nina," due to their father's murder of Nina.

The lawsuit was filed last Thursday, just a day before Reiser accepted a deal with the prosecution and the court and was sentenced on second-degree murder charges. Also that day, new details emerged on how Reiser killed his estranged wife, from a 30-page statement filed with the court. In that statement, Reiser admitted he killed Nina after an argument, using what the he called a Judo technique, and that he kept her corpse in his car for two nights while he dug a crude, makeshift grave in the Oakland hills.

Linux Foundation LFCS and LFCE: Alberto Bullo

I started using Linux few years ago out of curiosity when my old computer started to get slow and wanted to try something lighter. At the time, I had a disk of Fedora lying around from a conference and managed to get it installed and working. Since then, I started using it for everyday tasks to get more familiar with the alternative software. I really liked the fact that I could select any distro I wanted and have full control of the operating system. I also used Linux for university projects and started to better understand how to use the utilities and services. Open source projects caught my attention when I started using them on my first job as they gave me the ability to adjust the features and code to my needs but also to contribute back to the community. I then started visiting open source conferences to get more involved and became a big fan of the initiative. Read more
