I disagree with that assertion. ClamAV in it's source form is for
any moderately competent Unix / Linux System Administrator. You do not
have to be "highly technically competent" to be a good Sys Admin, you
need to know some command line basics and be able to follow

I agree that ClamAV in it's source form is NOT for the typical end
user, especially an end user who is not comfortable with the command
line user interface.
