    "There is no evidence that is the case" I believe that was Reiser's defence until convicted of 1st degree murder then plea dealed to 2nd degree murder if he revealed where the body was. I think most people here would agree 1st degree murder is an evil act committed with evil intent, thus actus reus and mens rea.
    So because he did something bad, he's still bad? People can't change?

      Does this mean you don't use any GPL'd software at all?

        The discussion you've jumped into wasn't about software but about the service provided by Phoronix.
        And that this service is either being paid for by subscription or having advertisement as part of the delivered content.

          Otherwise you tread the path the of dangerous censorship, ask some old greybeard former soviet client state citizens about that...

          Im pissing against the wind I think so I will sign off... the far left echo chamber is apparently everything linux today, so they have far more in common with stalin than anything else!
          I dislike censorship as much as the next person, but some topics are inappropriate for some situations. For example, I strongly believe that you have the right to describe in graphic detail which sexual acts you find attractive, but if you did it at your niece’s 7th birthday party you would rightfully be told to stop or leave.

            But tasteless jokes aside though, I'm afraid i've been out of the loop, do we know why he killed her? Classic case of cheating or something? Or was he just a serial killer at heart? What's going on?
            easy too google, his wife took his kids and ran off to russia.

            dont get tho why his work is sneezed at, you have alot prisoners beeing offered working for the public (mowing lawns in public spaces for example). if we dont see prison as "correction facilities", why even bother.

              All of it is just sad. There are no winners. Hans got prison and his reputation as a great engineer wrecked. His kids lost their mother, Nina lost her life. Everyone lost and for what? Jealousy? Honour? Machismo? Out of control aggression? The big lesson from Hans Reiser is to seek help before you stand where he is.

                Prison can serve multiple purposes including rehabilitation, restitution, retribution, and protection of the public.

                It would be interesting to see FOSS contributions treated as “community service”, though.

                  The actual lesson: don't murder people, stuff them in a bag like they are garbage and bury them in the woods. Turns out most people don't need help not to murder people. The guy gets way too much sympathy in these parts, just because he's a nerd who could program well, it's pretty fucked up. The fact you listed the murderer first of those who were negatively affected says it all.

                    But because he did something bad something can't be changed, his former wife cannot be made undead.

                    To paraphrase "It's a hell of a thing, killin' a person. Take away all they's got, and all they's ever gonna have."

                      Infanticide?
