I wouldn't exactly call Robin Miller uninformed, or worried about his job.
He is certainly shouting about the switch from the mountaintops either way,
and with his new book out soon, I wouldn't think he would want to sully his
reputation right now on a total fabrication. The Register and Slashdot have
picked it up also, that's not verification, but it also shows that those
respective sites think he may be on to something.
