Too bad...Symantec is where good programs go to die. Authough, maybe they will ditch LiveState, and keep Altiris just as it is...

We've seen so much movement in this sector lately.

HP buys Novadigm
Microsoft buys Softricity
Now this.

Who's next? I'm taking bets.

I am at an Altiris User Group meeting right now. No real details, but they did say that they would be retaining all (or most) senior management to operate Altiris as a separate business unit within Symantec. Looking at about June before the deal goes is expected to go through.
