    What happens if someone still relies on floppy disks and upgrades their kernel?

    Good riddance. It had its time and place for technical reasons, but that's long gone. Time to move on...

    It always stops any discussion about the file-system.

    Even the mail thread states:

    ...but of course, every ReiserFS discussion here inevitably ends like this...
    Yeah, I know. Also kinda hard to talk about Monica Lewinsky without...you know...stuff.

Permanent banning of internet (even beyond parole) is likely reserved for specific crimes, like hacking or CP, that are related to computer use.
    For the record, I don't care if HR dies on the inside, I'm just addressing the legal point.
    It's been a while and maybe I am remembering it wrong. Maybe not >never< touch a computer but something about him him not having access to a computer so that he wasn't able to continue working on the FS from jail. Or maybe he just refused to want to work on it from jail? It was something like that. There was some specific thing that was either he himself imposed or was imposed on him that stopped his further development from jail. Something like that.

    You're right though that his crime was a plea to 2nd degree and not a computer crime so it's not really preventing him from ever using computers. I'm no FS expert but in it's early incarnation, it was always talked about as being very advanced compared to what was around at the time. Lot's changed since then though.

    ReiserFS was introduced 21 years ago
    Fuck has it been that long ago? Makes you feel ancient.

    I remember doing file system comparisons when I was first getting into Linux, and reiserfs was one of the standouts at the time. Jeez I feel old.

    Yeah, Human Resources are the worst

    NB: Please don't discuss the personalities involved.

    The code will always live on, right? All I'm saying is that Reiser had *his* vision for the FS. No one else can be in his mind or know in what direction he would have taken it had he not gone to jail. But he is in jail and no one can interpolate in place of Reiser. If he stays or dies in jail, the furtherance of the code will basically die with him.
