Well that is a surprisingly recent set of results, Outpost Firewall Pro 2008 has only just been released. I have a lifetime membership for Outpost Pro but I will be waiting for a little while and monitoring the outpostfirewall.com forums to see how people get on and if there are any bugs that need ironed out.

Outpost Firewall Pro 2008 is Vista compatible and by all accounts has been built from the ground up not an update to version 4.0, hence the jump to version 6.0, bering that in mind I will most certainly wait a while before upgrading.

Whilst Comodo may not be on top spot it still does well and any that come in a excellent or very good would do a commendable job. However these tests are only leak test scores and there are other things to consider.

Maybe David is referring to this...

Well it is really a similar case with Outpost free it may still be available but it hasn't had any development in years. So naturally its results were pants, technical speak for rubbish.

Even though BlackICE is discontinued and didn't fair very well but still managed to bet some that are still in development even Norton ISS and McAfee ISS, ZA Free, etc.

Sygate is another that is no longer in development and probably some others that I don't know about

I don't care about this test... Online Armour screwed my PC so bad I was ready to hunt for developers  ;D Thank God for Norton Ghost, I restored my system image I've made prior to installing (read: testing) this POS firewall. Ugh...

I have just installed OA and it looks great . Setup was easy and uncomplicated and its features are well over and above that of CPF.
I guess its still in development mode but what i have installed seems  stable.
what i really like is the capacity to run programs that may have vulnerabilities in a reduced permissions mode

Does it really matter to be top of the heap, being a competent firewall and ease of use etc. as far as I'm concerned are more important. For years I have been happy to use Outpost pro when it was getting slagged off at matousec, did I jump ship no because it is a competent firewall.

Now Outpost Pro 2008 is equal top of the heap, am I rushing out to download and update my version 4.x just so I have the top of the heap firewall. No, I will be waiting patiently for the other guinea pigs to discover any hiccups/glitches/bugs, etc. and have them resolved before I update even though I have a life-time license.

This version of the firewall was built from the ground up so I guess it is likely to have some issues, I would be surprised if it didn't even with sever thousand involved in the beta testing.

Not really sure - I'd like to see how we go with OA before I commit to a date on the Vista release

Here's the latest answer I received on the Wilders forum.
The last time I tried this firewall on my XP, I got the same results a Sasha.
Good thing I had way to GoBack.  ;D

Hey David,

Yes I agree with you, ease of use and functionality matters most. However most people do not look at these charts like this, they see a Firewall in 1st place passing all leaktests and they think it is the best.

Outpost, or Comodo for that matter I am sure will both have their ups and downs, but if you like the software and it serves your purpose there is no need to change.

Sorry they haven't told us a release date yet, hopefully sometime this year, if not then early next year.

I'm running the latest beta in Vista Ultimate 32 bit, I haven't had any issues with it, but others have, so the next release (which will be a release candidate) will be focusing mainly on bug fixes. So it is safe to assume that all features in the current beta are the features that will be in the final release.

If I find out a date then I will post it here if I can (sometimes they will tell us but will ask us to keep it quite)

Good to know, because the latest three betas haven't walked one single step behind on the network driver install failure on my Vista 32bits. Still not a 'final' answer from the Comodo forum... just reporting, reporting, reporting, reporting...
