Linux guru (and murderer) Hans Reiser attacked in prison

Was watching KRON 4 this evening (Bay Area news station) and the ticker mentioned the news.

Found the article here.

SAN FRANCISCO (KCBS) – An East Bay man, imprisoned at San Quentin for the murder of his wife, is recovering after he was beaten up by several prisoners this week.

Lieutenant Sam Robinson tells KCBS that Hans Reiser suffered some cuts and bruises after he was jumped by several inmates on their way back to their cells after a morning meal.

Reiser was checked out and treated for his injuries. The prison has put him in a special cell, isolated from the general population as a precaution.

The former Linux programmer was found guilty of first degree murder for killing his wife Nina back in September of 2006. But in a plea deal, he was sentenced for second- degree murder after leading authorities to his wife’s remains, which were buried in the Oakland Hills.

The deal spared Reiser the death penalty but prosecutors say he will likely spend the rest of his life behind bars.

Give him a computer so he can finish the next Reiser filesystem :stuck_out_tongue:
And modify his attackers criminal records … and transfer them to death row :wink:

ReiserFS… is that a filesystem that kills your most precious files and then hides the remains somewhere you can’t find them? :stuck_out_tongue:

That’s the beast :wink:

The Reiser filesystem in progress was looking at ways to index information inside files (not just the filenames themselves) & store this information for quick reference.

It’s something that M$ & Google are working on, as a patchup after there is an existing filesystem.
