    Re: Vista and Norton

    To be honest, Symantec really won't get far in my honest opinion... it's far
    too close to be halted... but we'll have to wait and see.

    it was on nbc's business news this morning at 430 so it must be pretty big
    news. The quote they used "Symantec is suing Microsoft in hopes of further
    delaying the release of windows Vista." Would this delay the release of
    windows Vista Beta 2 and Subsequent releases or just the RTM and Final?

    This is what, a look and feel case? Symantec have patented sucking hard
    enough to pull a melon through a straw and are worried that Vista might
    infringe?

    Re: Vista and Norton

    If it goes through, it could greatly affect the release of Longhorn Server,
    not Vista, my understanding is, the storage technology was licensed from
    Symantec in 1996 and used in Windows 2000 Server and Server 2003. Its
    supposed to be used in Longhorn Server also, what I can't understand is how
    is it being used in an abusive way against Symantec when the technology is
    still be licensed from them it seems.

    Re: Vista and Norton

    they didn't go into detail. I just figured it was about the fact that vista
    was including security in it and norton was worried it would hurt it's
    anti-virus and security software business. Although I noticed that Microsoft
    actually recommends Norton Anti-Virus when you go through the security setup
    procedure in Vista.

    Re: Vista and Norton

    No, its about a storage technology licensed from Symantec in 1996 (actually
    from Veritas, a Company Symantec recently purchased), nothing to do with
    security. Well, it does not specifically recommend Norton AV, a notification
    shows up in the notification area recommending you install a AntiVirus
    utility immediately since you might be at risk.

    Re: Vista and Norton

    Andre:

    Another reason could be that a year after x64 was released
    Symantec components still aren't compatible with or function with x64. Which
    is a requirement when Vista is released.

    "Which is a requirement when Vista is released."
    Exactly what is a requirement?
    Symantec being compatible with Vista?
    Says who?
