Symantec Antivirus also known as Norton AntiVirus is big, slow, bloated, crappy, sucky, resource hogging, memory draining piece of crap.

Bloated means that the program has too many bells and whistles that are not required by normal users. As a result, the program uses a lot of resources and subsequently slow the whole system now. Norton is a good example.

Bloat is tons of useless crap that is not needed and do nothing but make the software resource hogging and more difficult to use. Prime examples are software such as MSN. Intended for instant messenging, but comes with handwriting, games, skins and all kind of crap.

 

An antivirus software should detect and remove viruses. But Norton has a big skinned slow interface. I wouldnt install Norton AntiVirus into my computer, even if I was payed todo so.

 

Andavari, you do have a point. Maybe I should do that. ;)

 

rridgely, yes that is pretty true. I am a strong proponent of open source, open standards and freedom. However, just because something is open source doesnt mean that I like it. Because some open source is not free in all aspects. Even though they might be open source they might have restrictive software licenses that does not permit or grant you to use, distribute or modify it in such a way that you would like to. I like alot software under the GPL (GNU General Public License) and LGPL (GNU Lesser General Public License), but also the BSD license and pretty much all OSI approved licenses. (OSI is Open Source Iniative).

If there is no publically available source code to a software, then I am less likely to trust it, and less likely to use it.
