If you follow open source or read slashdot, you may have heard that Hans Reiser, author of the ReiserFS file system, was convicted of first degree murder recently. In an article (that is in such bad taste that it's actually funny) , ZDNet author Jason Perlow, asks how Linux will find a replacement for ReiserFS, now that the author is an incarcerated murderer. I just think its hilarious that the first thing geeks will contemplate when a programmer is  found guilty for murder is how it will affect the software development status. Isn't that the project manager's job?
