Anyone know when a "Norton System Works" bootable CD for OSX will be out.
It looks like a bootable CD is already available for Norton System Works:
If you're looking for a new disk utility for OS X, I recommend the Micromat Drive 10 software:
Micromat promises a May, 2003 delivery date for TechTool Pro 4, and a free upgrade for purchasers of Drive 10:
Avoid mixing Norton and OSX like the plague - the plague I tell you.
Constant Kernel Panics
Killing Extent Allocations
General Disk Destruction
I spent two days this week recovering from using Norton for half an hour.
I own Norton SystemWorks 2.0.
And you can buy it from me really cheap. Yes, I'm serious. Contact me if you're interested.
I have Drive 10 and Norton Systemworks 2.0. When I have had problems, Drive 10 has been useless. While I agree about the kernel panics with NS, booting from it and running NDD has been the only thing that has saved my ass a few times. Watching what both do--in terms of optimizing and troubleshooting--NS is much better, IMHO. It fixes many more problems and optimizes faster.
A good rule of thumb: don't install utility software--just run it from the CD. It fixes more and saves trouble. I personally don't install anything that adds .kext's unless I absolutely have to.
