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?

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.

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.

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. :)

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?

This has been the case with new releases of Windows, older versions of
Norton will either require updates or newer version of the product that
specifically has support for that release of Windows. Symantec has stated
users can expect a new version of Norton that will support Windows Vista 30
days after Vista's release.
