back to article SACK MORE BRITS, Symantec UK told by US supremos - sources

Symantec UK bosses must redraft their master plan to layoff Brit workers - after their first proposal was rejected by the US top brass for not cutting far enough, sources claim.

Symantec's done more for PC sales than a new version of Windows ever has

Sadly, I have nothing further to add to this story.
