    This is actually good news. Symantec want's to become focused entire on Malware Fighting, and not spreading itself out. This was one of the reasons they trimmed their product line down to 2 (Av and AV+Backup).

    I think this is a good move, sometimes companies just get too bloated trying to do it all. I think now they will be able to focus better on the main products.
