    Yes this is a much improved over version 8.1. It still is light on resources, but makes booting up a bit slower. In any case, some $300...$400 isn't really worth it for a single home user/ but for offices I could see the new threat detection coming in handy

    I know what you mean, the scheduling is pretty flakey with 8.1. Next week I'm upgrading the office to 9.0.0.338, I'll let you know how the scheduling works.
