    I voted:

    - none on my primary linux laptop
    - avast on my back up laptop
    - fortinet on my family laptop

    Feel free to select multiple choices for AVs that you use on your own and family laptops (if you manage them yourself). Please do not vote for AVs that you use at work even if you do manage security for those. There is another poll for AV's used at work. Cheers :)

    Cant believe EAM was second place in the last poll. :blink:
    Probably not a lot of people voted in that one?

    I've considered giving Unthreat (curious name) a go, but many of the user reviews I came across weren't particularly complimentary. But I see we have at least one satisfied customer.
