Number two security software vendor McAfee is holding discussions with Microsoft over “simple changes” to Windows Vista and believes that the operating system release will not be delayed.
The attitude of McAfee stands in stark
contrast to the confrontational approach taken by Symantec which has
complained to European Commission about the integration of security
features by Microsoft into Vista.
Symantec also has pending litigation with Microsoft over Veritas
storage technology that Symantec alleges has misappropriated and
included in Vista. The lawsuit launched in May seeks to have further
development of Vista halted.
However, McAfee was not talking about complaints or litigation against
Microsoft today. Rather, the specialist security software vendor
believes a more cooperative approach to what it sees as the inevitable
release of Vista is the correct path to follow.
