As for me, I'm quite happy with Comodo and am sticking with it (for now, anyway - more on that below).  While I agree that the "Advanced" settings and options are probably way beyond the ken of the average user, in most cases they can just be left at the defaults.

My only concern is with the upcoming new version, which from comments on their forums sounds like it will be an entirely new application, having only the name in common with the current one.  Hopefully it will continue to be user-friendly for most users even with the drastic changes.

(default). 320 gig HD, 15Mb DSL, Win firewall, Avast 12.3.2280 free, SpywareBlaster, MBAM Prem., Crypto-Prevent

What does Tech think about comodo now?
A very good firewall. Support could be better (most of the times, just from users and not from the programmers themselves).
But I couldn't manage to install any of the betas on my Vista Business 32 bits system.
I do not try on XP but I've kept the version 2 (stable).

Testing ZA 7.1.078.000 version on Vista 32bits.
The delays are present... I can't browse easily.
It was not detected, at first, by Windows Security Center.
I'll let it until tomorrow, testing.

I can't stand for the delays... I can't install Comodo...
What a pain in Vista

Sure. The problem is with it :'(
By the way, ZoneAlarm installs perfectly in my Vista computer.
