Isn't IOS based on OS X? Maybe it's not an either/or thing. Maybe it's simply re-enabling a few more features in IOS that had to be axed to fit it on a phone with limited battery life. True Full multi-tasking comes to mind. Better support for peripherals & ports, and other such stuff.

I've had it running since yesterday -Unobtrusive -Caught 4 virii (keylogger & trojans)missed by ESET NOD32 in software installers I had downloaded -Took about 40% longer to do a full deep scan than Nod32 -No logs showing that the scans ran when scheduled (only a list of detected problems) -Smart enough to look for virus catalog updates right before scanning -Phones home to MSFT (anonymously) with security data It seems less obtrusive running in the background watching applications & downloads than Norton 2009 did on my old computer. I haven't tried Norton 2010 (and hopefully never will) I found ESET Smart Security 4 to be buggy on Win 7 x64 (dropping the internet connection unless I disabled the firewall mini-driver) Overall, this Windows Security Essentials seems like the best option for me right now. And it's free, which is nice.

If what they've been doing hasn't solved the problem, tell them to do something else. -- Gerald Weinberg, "The Secrets of Consulting"
