Been using WSA for a year now. No complains from my side.
Would like to see it in these tests.
At $ 55 a year + $ 6 for the 'Extended Download Service' for one machine I doubt it will get very popular.
Panda cloud is doing really great, hopefully they will keep on improving
Unfortunately my experiences with it in the last 18 months is that is rather heavy, so it's not an av I recommend.
I'm surprised that Norton has been sitting these out.. It used to perform well in them and kind of odd to just drop testing like a lead rock.
Why is it odd? M$ has done the same thing. Probably see more companies doing the same thing going forward, putting their resources where it really counts.
Speaking of Norton, there was a long debate on them against AV-Comparatives: https://www.wilderssecurity.com/showthread.php?t=345131
Microsoft results are shown as the white-dotted line.
What happened to Bitdefender? It has been the best AV for several months.
where it really counts? Please point out "Where" and how do you know "Where" is where it really counts.
Might be as well call all types of SAT/GMAT/GRE tests off, because the students should put their efforts where it really counts.
Ignorance is a blessing.
And maybe that is why the education system is this country which was top tier at one time is now below most industrialized countries, and falling below so-called 3rd world countries. Why? Because the kids are trained passed those tests, and beyond that many of them don't know s**t else.
Maybe for you it is.
The education systems in all these countries have not been through much changes all these years, AND the education systems now are basically the same as the ones when the US was top tier. These tests, GRE/GAMT/SAT have been run the same way in this country, so do the exams in other countries. So what's your logic?
The education systems themselves, especially the test systems, are not to be blamed, because they are just like what they were. It's the other factors such as the country's economics to be considered. What really changed is the economic situations and that's the driving force. Everything is interlinked and the exam system in this country is certainly not the one to be blamed.
"Because the kids are trained passed those tests, and beyond that many of them don't know s**t else" this statement sounds more like describing the testing systems in some east Asian countries where they rely solely on test results.
Let other ppl judge who's ignorant.
That's one viewpoint, to which you are entitled. But according to so-called experts studying the issue, the problem mainly stems from the education system itself where educators are placing the emphasis on students' ability to pass those tests at the expense of teaching what's necessary to prepare the students for a global economy where they not only have to compete at home, but with the rest of the world. There's been plenty of scandals with principals and teachers reprimanded, or fired, for engaging in the practice. Summary, mis-allocation of resources and the wrong priority.
Let's follow the thread title and stay on topic please.
