    Symantec is seeking to stop "further development, sale or distribution of he 'Vista' and 'Longhorn' versions of the Windows client and server operating systems," among other injunctions.
    Likely to happen????

    I don't think so, but it will undoubtedly delay!!!

    Makes sense. When Vista and the Live service arrive i suspect it will wipe out a fair chunk of Symantec's customer base.

    How many people think this is hillarious since Windows is the only OS Symantec can make a profit from since it is the only one that performs poorly enough to NEED something like Symantec software?

    Smacks a bit of biting the hand that feeds you!
