Is anyone on this e-mail continually getting spam e-mails about Norton
System Works 2003? I would think that this would be a scam to try and
get credit card numbers etc... If it was legitimate, I think I will
switch to linux sooner than planned.

I saw some last week.  I thought it odd, but why not?

Could also be a retailer trying to sell Norton System Works 2003.  I
doubt the vendor would bother with UBE themselves for the same reason
they don't have stores nation wide - other businesses are more suited
to sale and distribution.
