[linux-elitists] sobig.f: Microsoft Windows virus, not computer virus

A correction on the Sobig.F email virus.

This is an email virus infecting *only* computers running the Microsoft
Windows family of operating systems.

Users of other operating systems -- GNU/Linux, Macintosh, FreeBSD, BeOS,
etc., are immune to infections from this virus (though Lord knows,
we're getting enough crud from the rest of you out there).

Keeping the story straight.

Peace.
