Call me crazy...
... but I don't give a tinker's cuss who is in charge, how "sexy" the product is, how much "leverage" of systems, or any other marketing horse feathers. The only things that matter to me are:
1. Does the product work
2. does it fill a real need
3. Is it at a reasonable price
4. Can I get sensible support if I make a mistake
Quite simply, Symantec have screwed up in too many areas for me to really trust them ever again. They seem to be focussed far too much on just making more sales / profit, rather than on building products that people will want to come back to and buy.
