Morning Ireland piece on MyDoom virus

In a radio interview (realaudio link) this morning an “expert” told the nation that the DDOS attack on SCO was orchestrated by “people who are promoting a thing called open system software where by you can have competitors for the Microsoft products which are essentially free.” Peter Aherne provided a brief transcript of the interview and it looks shocking in it’s ignorance of the facts!
There’s a lengthy thread on the ILUG about it including links to articles debunking the interview.
The serious accusations in this interview need an answer and sooner rather than later!
Update! Nils posted a cleaned up transcript of the interview, and Gavin McCullagh posted one too.
