    Seems like a good writeup with some valid points, but I have to strongly disagree with the notion of "FPs- the future?". Microsoft have been providing high detection rates with best-in-class low FP rates for quite some time.

    I do believe they aren't going to disappear any time soon, and I also believe it is safer to hmm on any files, marked safe or unsafe, by your AV.

    Hi funkydude,
    Maybe the title is a little ambiguous, and I should have used something like:
    "FPs- future strategies?". Don't doubt the quality of MSEs detection, incidentally.
