Maybe he would have liked that a lot of other people use it as this has an
effect of finding the tiniest bugs.

However I've read on the net that Hans Reiser has some personal problems
(estranged wife gone missing http://www.ninareiser.com ; he's trying to get
back custody of children ) and financial problems (sad fact is that reiserfs
didn't make him much money, which is a shame).

It seems this man is strugling with serious Real Life trouble.
