This is bad advice.  Linus is *not* immune to viruses.  There just
aren't as many written for Linux.  Ever heard of the Slapper worm?

Well, Linux, as such, doesn't need AV protection because it's pretty
much immune.  But if you're running a mail server for Windoze boxes, you
can use ClamAntiVirus,
