Not TOTALLY compatible with OS X 10.9 yet (I received an error message that PGPxxx.kext could not be installed) BUT...was also pleasantly surprised to see that my old PGP Desktop 9.x licence was able to activate/unlock it :-)

How bad can this get, it has nothing that the free GPGTools doesn't and actually GPGTools still is compatible with Apple Mail..., I thought I could export a subkey only to let me sign on my mobile phone but not to export my master private key to there, because after all is a mobile phone. Unfortunately this is not a feature on this 100$ bad software, GPG does a better job for free, Sad to say what I want to do can only be done byt GPG terminal, not as easy as it should.

Let the vaporware begin. This is supposed to be v10.2.1, but the downloaded installer is v10.2.0.

Well, yeah. But this URL:
http://www.symantec.com/business/support/index?page=content&id=TECH166098
says that 10.2.1 is available. But when you go to the Symantec download link, it also gets you a 10.2.0 dmg. So it's Symantec at fault. Typical Windows software company.

It is hard to believe that Symantec would be so brazen as to post this product on MacUpdate while they are in the midst of not coping with a fiasco resulting from its incompatibility with Lion 10.7.4.

The user experience with this is so bad I actually can't believe I used to recommend it to others... on top of that a license won't cost you less than $174/user.

I have been a PGP user and supporter since its inception and I am choked up when I say it is time to put old yeller down. "Game Over Maaaan".

Current version is most definitely a beta. Boot disk encrypted fine and the WDE boot up works perfectly.....major problems with extra disks in your mac though. 10.0 is sketchy accepting passwords for other encrypted disks within the mac and when it does it fails to mount those disks. At least I'm able to decrypt my extra disks. I can't wait for an update.
