I've been using nod 2.5 trial version and enjoy it very much. I'm considering purchasing a license. (I'm a long time & happy avast pro user.) I hear nod 3.0 is coming in the not too distant future. According to eset's faqs, program updates are free for current subscribers, but there isn't much mention as to major program overhauls such as v2 to v3. Does anyone here know with some degree of certainty that if i buy a liscense now, will i be able to update to v3 without having to pay twice? Because that would be very sucky if I did... If not, i'll probably give em a call to try and find out. BTW, the preliminary info here on v3 looks very nice! I like how the gui has been made semi-noob-proof and more intuitive. I'm sure they will do a nice job on their integrated firewall as well. (i hope) Edit:I see a few other threads related to this question. People seem to be uncertain though... I appologize if this has been asked repeatedly.
