Given how Alvin is pretty much making things up, I think criticism is
a good idea. (Is this another interview tactic, make crap up and see
if the interviewee calls bullshit on you?)

Pretty popular with SUSE users. Which is why it's very important that
they are abandoning it, that's almost all of the userbase going away
in one fell swoop. Apparently the guy at SUSE who is the sole
maintainer of reiser3 recommended punting it.

Just because someone's open-source and widely used doesn't mean it
is sustainable.
