Don't like the GUI right now, but I suppose I'll get used to it.

 I like the protection, so the appearance isn't that important.

Looks different than 7, but that seems to be where the major differences start & end.

Don't want much do you, there have to be differences in the free and paid versions or why would people buy the Pro or AIS versions.

I like it, well, aside from the pointless use of round corners and even more pointless home tab. And even though I have AIS, I have to agree with free users, that the UI needs more contrast. Especially the orange text on white. The orange needs to be a tad darker and the menu on left should use OpenSans Semibold instead of Regular.

I think avast! 8 is amazing. I for one love the new GUI of the free version.

If you truly cared about a firewall, you would've payed for Internet Security.

Tried it and don't really care for it......just a personal opinion, of course, but I prefer Version 7 and will continue to use it. I don't need or want a lot of the new features...a good example is the firewall.....I have one that works perfectly. Also, I dont like the new GUI at all. I'm used to Version 7 and REALLY like it's layout. Not to mention the fact that I don't like ANYTHING about Windows 8 or it's "look". I still use XP with service pack 3 and it run's like a charm on 3 flight simulators and everything else. Of course I DO know how to maintain the machine and that means a LOT  ;) That's my 2 cents...LOL

Same here Radioman. This 72 year old bird can't cope with the new one. Will stay on 7.
