Free, as in beer, software is not "free for a reason". I know Brett
didn't mean this generalization in a bad way, as I know he's a
Linux-head at heart. So, I'll just leave it at that.

As for anti-virus software, I heard about the Grisoft stuff here on the
qlist first, yes. I have not heard of it otherwise. It works decently
well, though, and I like the philosophy of the company. As far as work
environments go, perhaps you could get a trial version from them and see
how it goes before purchasing licenses? I've only had Norton at the
workplace, and it worked okay - the server would push updates out to
everyone to keep you up to date, and it was pretty darned transparent
from the end user standpoint.

My $0.02.
