Analysis: Symantec Buys Veritas, Still Has Acquisition Itch (Linux Business Week): "Sources claim that the Symantec-Veritas deal, which oddly mixes enterprise with desktop DNA, is only a first step for Symantec and that the ex-IBMer who runs the place wants to build the next great software company, a giant that would compete with IBM and Microsoft for dominance of the distributed, on-demand, web infrastructure.
