One good thing we should be able to hope for from a change in ownership even if 
the personnel and equipment are the same or a great deal in common: improved 
management oversight. In my view the most worrying underlying problem at

just can't have been giving this the attention it needs. The sale takes them 
out of the picture. That's not a great story for Symantec's shareholders, who 
might reasonably assume that similarly inadequate oversight will continue for 
the other activities of the business - but it's good news for the Relying
