    just get it on Poisoned..

    ...in a couple months. Initially, there will be a bunch of "fake" .dmg files that will piss everybody off, but then, finally, someone will post the real thing and you won't have to feel bad about paying Fifth Generation Systems - oops, I mean Salient, no, Deneba, I mean Norton, oops, I mean Symantec - any money for what will surely be a third-rate product.

    dufus company

    Don't these companies get pre-release versions of new OSes so they can fix their programs before the official release?

    These guys must have had at least two-three months to fix this problem...

    At least they are talking

    I have to at least give Symantec credit for announcing an expected release date. Sure it's late to the party. On the Windows platform they would have announced immediate availability of the new versions the day the OS upgrade shipped. But at least they are saying something to keep people informed.

    I just hate it when a software vendor refuses to give an estimated date for a product to ship. Yeah I know there are challenges with making an accurate estimate but if you stick to good software engineering practices then the more solid that estimate will be. So 2 stars to Symantec for keeping customers informed but you loose one for handing in your assignment late.

    Better than Techtools

    To be fair, Norton has had a solid disk utility and optimization compatible program for Jaguar for more than a half a year while TTP 4 languished. So this 30 day delay after TTP 4 release is really a small matter. Actually, I have yet to actually receive my TTP 4 disk after much waiting.
