anti-virus software for Gnu/Linux


I have read several opinions regarding AV for Gnu/Linux.  The last one is Rick's rant <http://www.linuxmafia.com/~rick/faq/index.php?page=virus>.  However, the information is dated.

So what is the opinion now-a-days?  I just read a post last week where a new Gnu/Linux user strongly advocates AV for all new users.  The claim was something along the line of "What if I send you an Email with an executable attachment like [cd, rm -r]".  I still don't buy the claim that I need AV on my box, but I'm also very open to sound security advice.

Thanks so much.


Wishing you well.
