    Somewhat interesting read but he does try hard to discredit the free AV's.

    Huh? Suites? Since when do free AV's claim to be suites?

    Only daily updates, no heuristics/multiple levels, no real-time protection, etc...o_O
    Free AVG, Avast and Avira really don't fit this description.

    Mmm, wait..., companies that choose a different style of marketing; free versions instead of 'let's just use traditional marketing and spend on ads, ads, ads' have fewer patents and thus have lesser expertise?

    Those free AV's are causing pain, I assume.

    Touché. Well, almost.

    Mr. Costin Raiu mentions "There are two types of such security suites: freeware that provide “essential” security (Microsoft Security Essentials, for example), not full protection, and limited versions of commercial products (AVG Free, Avira Free, BitDefender free)"

    As far as I know, those mentioned by him are all AV's.
    Had he mentioned OSS Free, the word 'suite' would be applicable.
    But he never mentioned the Outpost suite.

    This is the kind of talk that will make Comodo CEO mad. First it was Norton, now it is Kaspersky. Melih has a lot of challenges to issue. :argh:.

    Thanks.

    It has been a while, but nice to see Costin a director now. Keep up the good work. :)
