Haha, thanks for that update. I'll install it to try it out.
On another note, I installed the Linux version on a system running
Debian 5, no issues during the install. I even noticed during the
installation it paused at about 39% and I briefly saw a .deb extension
file show up the system and then run, so it must be first checking the
distribution of linux you have before install, it was very interesting.
I also installed it here on a Macbook Pro. Don't know why someone would
want an anti-virus on linux or mac, but hey, to each their own. I should
note I did not choose to have the potentially unwanted program detection
turned on... I can't imagine how big the list of PUW's would be for such
systems... maybe 3 items?!
Either way, they are installed so if anybody needs feedback on how they
work or any testing info let me know.
Thunderbird 3 also works well, I wonder if that triplication problem
would be around with systems running version 3 of thunderbird?
