Yes, Jon, please change it to read "a greater loss".
By my lights, though, the effect on the perception of Linux among the public completely
overwhelms any effect on development of individual file systems or on the architecture of the
virtual file system layer. We'll never know if she's dead, or, if she is, whether he killed
her, but that's more nuance than the public can absorb; about all they can manage is "Linux ::
murder!". The lesson to the rest of us is, "if you're known for contributing to Free Software,
don't get yourself accused of, or framed for, murder." (That's good advice for everybody
else, too.) I might add, "study how not to be universally reviled; it will improve your life
elsewhere than in front of juries."
