If you look into the call transcript you will see that the reason for the change is actually a tailwind long term! Also the CEO move should be expected at this point. Mike was there to transition Symantec as they said. Great news that they are now looking to get in a visionary.
Wow! That sounds personal. How about an objective post with some detail facts to support your statement. I agree that this is the right move for SYMC at this point but it all is around their foward looking needs. Brown seemed to do well getting them split from Veritas and refocused on their core strength. But again, your post sound to be a personal one.
