Well, I believe they well deserved it... no one would give such a huge amount of money if they didn't think GriSoft is good enough.

Of course, their AVG's GUI looks really ugly, but with a touch of a good graphic designer they can make a hell of a good application. Right now, it doesn't look professional, and in the same time it doesn't even look "gamey"... it looks like those old applications from Windows 3.11 which is just a drawback in my humble opinion...

The investment is subject to approval by the competition council of the Czech Republic.  ;D
Hope Alwil have such a money support to get even better...

Hear hear as churchill said "we shall fight them on the beaches"
But avast motto is we shall fight them all, avast will not kneel, no one will make avast submit, its beating nortons, why some of them are being taken is because they don't have loyal fans.
Avg saids it all promises all then don't perform.

AVAST LIVE FOREVER, avast sell out whoever buys it would ruin it.

Also Neron where did you get your aviater. can I have one. ;D ;D ;D 8) ::) ::) ::) ::) ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D

Of course I can... the problem is I have to leave right now (actually I was on my doorstep when I heard a forum notification). Have to pick up my wife from her work place, and after that, when I come back I'll make something for you...  ;)

Cheers !

P.S. Right now it's 3:47 PM here, so let's say in about an hour or hour and a half... is that ok ?

No problems, glad to help if I can... now it will be really difficult to spot the difference between Neron's posts and yours...  ;D
