    ZA Free and ZA should really be separate selections.

    Edit/Update: My vote was for the ZA Paid Version + Router/Hardware Firewall.

    I agree but the number of choices is maxed out already, so I figure people can always post a message to indicate their choice of free vs. paid.

    Windows Firewall, Norton Intrusion Prevention/Browser Protection, and my hardware firewall is a robust package.

    Didn't see hardware firewall in the choices before I voted. I'm using Smoothwall in front of everything and Kerio 2.1.5 on all versions of Windows. No software firewall on Linux at this time.
