Dvorak (who's a bit of a nut himself) basis his whole commentary (this piece is OP-ED, not NEWS) on this:
You thus get the weird report by the folks at the Alexis de Tocqueville Institution (AdTI) that Torvalds slapped Linux together from old bits and pieces of possibly stolen code. This could be a subtle effort to support the notion that Linux might be illegal to use. Where there's smoke, there's fire. First SCO, then this!
a) No one ever heard of AdTI before this report came out (which gives them no credibility in my mind).
b) SCO is SCO - they've always been crazy, and their investors have always been sue happy.
I think Dvorak is making something out of absolutely nothing. Big surprise, eh?
