Back in the day, Norton software was actually developed by Peter Norton. Same with McAfee Antivirus, and they were much different products back then.

I'd lost track of what was going on with McAfee, other than teaching yoga. Things certainly have changed for him, and not for the better.

Norton and McAfee both suck.

But that's a crazy story....

They do now. Products actually written by them didn't. Peter Norton's Norton Utilities was really good. McAfee Antivirus used to be really good.

Today's software is bloated.
