Carefull with running the free stuff in a commercial environment. Unless you are an non-profit or a sole proprietorship you are forbidden to use the
free version in a business. Is all about the money. And it could cost your business a bunch if it ever came to head.
I deal with cheap a$$ business owners all the time who don't want to pay for software but it is the cost of doing business the right way. Takes money
to make money. Almost all the free software EULA'S are setup this way. Microsoft Security essentials is fine up to 10 licences. if you have an 11th
desktoy running it you are in violation for an example.
