The Avast of the decade!
« on: March 14, 2010, 07:48:30 PM »
Avast! 4.8 was a darling in the field of Free Antivirus. It tackled and finally won the Gold from Avira. But still it was critisized for it's not-so-familiar interface.

Came January 2010, came Avast! 5.0, a whole new revolution! Avast made a brilliant change to the interface.
P.S.: Avast! 5 made me change from Avira and VIPRE to Avast! Personally I recommend Avast! 5.

Now you have to prove wether you are a true 4.8 user or a loyal 5.0 user. Are you a person who looks deep into Alwil's products or is just an Avast fanboy. Come all and join this poll to crown the best Avast! product of the decade!

David, you can't find a purpose because this poll is absolutely sense- and useless.  ;D

This poll is not useless to some extent. I want your opinions on which version of Avast you like the most. I know it 3will be an easy win for Avast! 5 but if it does'nt score above 85%, then I will have to admit that people out there still use older versions of Avast and are satisfied with it. You can see that Avast! 4.8 has already recieved 3 votes which is not less in comparison of the popularity of Avast! 5. I have also added new options to the poll, please check out!

Avast! 5 ahead by 28 votes. ;D Avast! 4.8 has 4 votes to itself. :) Avira has only 3 votes to it's name. ;)

Common voters! Vote your choice. Polling closes 11th August 2011. Adjudge your choice as the Avast! of the decade!

At the time of writing, 277 views of this thread and only 36 votes in total. What that suggests is that 87% of the viewers don't think the poll is worth voting on!

There is no point in voting for any version of avast before 4.8 since they are no longer supported and can not update the virus database. Later this year, 4.8 support will also be stopped.

So, there is really only one avast version to be voted on.    ;)

I have removed the option "I prefer other older versions of Avast" from the poll.
Avast! 4.8 is slowly catching up to Avast! 5.
