Never thought I’d be happy to see Mac software go away

First IE, now according to this story, Norton has ceased work on SystemWorks and Norton Utilities for the Mac.

This says several things to me:

  • Mac OS X is much more stable and thus less people needed these applications
  • The word finally got around that people should have DiskWarrior in their arsenal, nor Norton Disk Mutilator (known to some as Doctor)

When I was having my issues with iPhoto 4.0.1 I ran DW on my G5, the first since I got the machine (and four OS updates, 1 kernel panic later) and it found zero problems with my disk. Awesome.

I’d much rather live in a world where I don’t rely on buggy software because my OS is stable. Yay!
