Is there a hope in hell of this offer being repeated?  I would bite...

Thanks, Mouser (just want to say I really do love this site, btw).  I can probably hang out for 6 months; I hear rumours that NOD are planning to include a firewall in version 3, so that might get to me before outpost...

Oh dear,

I sincerely hope not!

What is it with AV companies that they have to keep integrating firewalls and spyware stuff?

My experience (and I'd guess a lot of people's) is that as the apps get bigger and bigger and more complicated they get less good at doing what they do.

For me NOD32 is one of the best AV apps because it does one job well, and has minimal system impact.

If ESET want to produce a friewall that's fine, but personally I would much rather have two products.

I for one will probably look for a new AV app. if they go down the Symantec/MacAfee/Trend/ZoneAlarm routes.

Convergence is the bane of the software and hardware world at the moment.  Why specialise and do a task really well when you can do a dozen things in one package really badly?  Sadly market trends seem to be dictating this misguided notion and companies are so scared of specialising into an evolutionary dead end they blindly follow.  Thinking about it though, if anything should be an evolutionary dead end it should be Anti-Virus software and evidence is suggesting that this may be the case within a matter a few short of years.

I've used both Outpost and NOD32 for some time because they both do what they do really well without all of the extra 'value added' baggage like some of the competitors.  If that changes then I'll have no alternative then to change to a competing product.  If I can find one that hasn't followed suit that is....

As for Outpost discounts, I'm led to believe Agnitum's store used to allow you to initially purchase an 'upgrade' license (50% cheaper than a normal purchase) without having previously been a customer, which would then act as a full license within Outpost.  I wouldn't recommend this though as Agnitum has probably figured this out and blocked it by now AND it is probably dishonest, or something.  ;)

Happy to say that I discovered I was eligible for a migration discount of 50% - switching from Norton Internet Security.  So I'm up and running with Outpost now!  Need to find a good tutorial on setting it up, though, so am Google-ing away in another tab as I type...

m_s, find the outpost firewall user forum! it's one of the best things about outpost and it has links to some nice user-written guides and tutorials.  its on the agnitum site but a bit out of the way.
