Symantec CTO doesn't trust his employees or Windows machines but expects us to

I’m laughing at some unintentionally revealing quotations from the CTO of Windows anti-virus company Symantec.

I’ve long hated both Windows (for its proprietary software that kept me in the dark about what was going on on my own computer) and Symantec (for its bloated software that sometimes froze my computer and often consumed tons of CPU).

I haven’t used either for several years, except to do my taxes. And I’m much happier for it.

So I laughed when I discovered that Symantec’s CTO doesn’t use Windows either!

Mark Bregman, chief technology officer at security firm Symantec said he left his MacBook Pro behind in the US and took his MacBook Air whenever he flew to China.

Even more hilariously, he expects us to pay his company to protect our computers, but he doesn’t trust anyone in his company with his laptop!

“I don’t let my IT department near my laptop.”
