-and now it is here. But what about my lifetime license? Will Agnitum honour their words? So far, it seems *not*!!! I hope they very soon will realize that a lifetime license for Security Suite 2009 not just is a license for version 2009 only, but for the Security Suite. The word "lifetime" simply cannot point to a fixed version's number.
But maybe I yet just haven't found the proper way to update.
A lot of antivirus products offer both a lifetime license and time limited licenses (either 6 months or 1 year). This doesn't cover what you think it does.
The one year license is for that version only, and gives you one year of updates (not to be confused with upgrades). A 6 month license gives you 6 months of updates.
What this means is that the frequent updates to the detection dat files will only work for one year (or 6 months, depending on your license). After that, you can't update it any more without paying again.
A lifetime license to version 2009 will allow you to receive newly released dat files to version 2009, for life (or until they drop support for that version and stop releasing dat files, which they usually do about 3-5 years later), rather than for only one year. It does not allow you free upgrades to the next product version.
You could still be using version 2009 in 2011, and still getting updates to the dat files, where someone that only had a one year license wouldn't be able to get those updates any more.
Neither of you would be entitled to version 2010 (or newer) as part of your license.
