Linux is King Kong

(Editor's note: Aside from his assumption that part of the Linux community is responsible for MyDoom, it's a pretty decent article.)

Initial copies of the virus were programmed to attack the SCO Group, the tiny Utah company that has laid claim to portions of the open source operating system. Granted, Mydooms creators are a lunatic fringe. But they would not lob this electronic bomb if there werent a larger, saner group of people who are upset at SCOs attempt to harness the Linux behemoth.

That behemoth will not be tamed, however, as this weeks cover package, with memorable illustrations by artist Bill Mayer, makes abundantly clear.
