Symantec fires CEO Steve Bennett: To lose 1 chief is unfortunate, to lose 2 is OK, apparently

Calum n Shady

as someone who was just paid off

after 8 years at symc, my feeling is that the frustration felt by a large proportion of the sales team

seems to be (at last) shared by the board.

product roadmaps for 3 years with little innovation. compensation schemes and targets that are late and unrealistic. channel program that is still not announced after more than a year of empty promises.

expect a bunch of product sell offs in the near future. backup exec first to go.

Is desktop virtualization important?

Calum n Shady

u know it makes sense

Yes, there are privacy issues, but if and it could be a big if, you want someone else to deal with the backup,availability and privacy issues, desktop virtualisation has got to be the way to go! All those friends and neighbours who want help because i work in IT, well f***k 'em! Give them a thin client eg Sun Ray (no I don't work for sun) and let google (or some other service provider) worry about all the issues and if it's not available or they lose my data, then i'll sue the bas****s !
