  1. I couldn’t agree more. I have been using Linux for couple years now and I have been very pleased. The only computer that I still have Windows on is the Media Center Computer and that will probably be switched to Linux in the near future now that Native Netflix Linux playback is easier to enable.
  2. Why would the Gamer Mode on Linux be unnecessary? With the release of Steam for Linux and the pending release of SteamOS which is Linux based it might be a good idea to add the Gamer Mode to the ESET Linux Antivirus... hxxp://store.steampo...m/browse/linux/ hxxp://store.steampo...ngroom/SteamOS/ hxxp://store.steampowered.com/steamos And as far as the need for an updated ESET Linux Antivirus many Government agency’s have switched to Linux... hxxp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Linux_adopters Of the Top 500 Supercomputers Linux is used in 97% of them... hxxp://www.top500.org/statistics/details/osfam/1 Many big companies use Linux, including Google and Amazon... hxxp://www.tecmint.com/big-companies-and-devices-running-on-gnulinux/ Google even has there own custom version of Linux called Goobuntu that is based on Ubuntu... hxxp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Goobuntu And of course many individuals like myself have switched to Linux because of the Windows 8 FUBAR. There may not be any Known Viruses in the wild that affect Linux but it is nice to have a piece of mind plus there are things that Linux users still might need protection from such as Boot Sector Viruses, Browser Flash & Java Exploits. And any Windows or Mac OS viruses that cross a Linux users path wont be accidentally passed on even though those type of Viruses wont affect a Linux system. I think it is very necessary for ESET to update and improve the Antivirus technology and features for Linux users.
  3. I wish I had known that could be done. I would have bought the 3 PC version ESS instead of EAV because I have two Linux PC's that I can only install EAV on because there is no ESS for Linux and one Windows PC that I use as a Media Center that I could have put ESS on for better protection. Windows can certainly use all of the protection it can get.
  4. Not sure how long this deal is good for but NewEgg has ESET Nod32 Antivirus 6 - 1 PC on sale for $10.99 with the Promo Code that is in the attached image... hxxp://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16832114027
  5. I noticed a small typo on the ESET Website (US) in the ESET NOD32 Antivirus for Linux Desktop section. The latest version available Linux is v4 and on the Website it mentions v5. hxxp://www.eset.com/us/home/products/nod32-for-linux/
  6. I noticed a cosmetic issue and a function issue with the NOD32 program icon. The icon that is displayed in the Ubuntu 13.10 Launcher is very low resolution and it would look a lot nicer if it was replaced with a better quality icon. Also NOD32 is shown twice in the installed program list, one low resolution icon and one very nice looking icon but nothing happens when you click on either of them. It should at least open the program when clicking on it.
  7. Hello All, I am a former Windows user that switched to Linux (Ubuntu) over a year ago so I am familiar with ESET and their great Reputation. And even though Linux technically doesn't really need an Antivirus program I do share files with Windows users and I still have one Windows based computer that I use as a Media Center that I transfer files to that I want to make sure that are not infected. There are quite a few Linux Antivirus programs to chose from and ESET NOD32 Antivirus 4 for Linux seems to be the best of the bunch and one of the best things is that it eliminates Windows, Linux and Mac OS X malware so it gives me piece of mind for my Linux computers as well. Plus there are Browser based Java and Flash exploits that even Linux users need to be protected from. Most of the Linux Antivirus programs out there only detect Windows malware. I do have a couple of questions and comments about the product though. Are there any plans for a new version of ESET NOD32 Antivirus for Linux? Or plans for a Cyber Security or Smart Security version with more features? Version 4 for Linux has been out for quite a while now and the Mac version is at 5 and the Windows version is up to 7. With the release of Steam for Linux and the SteamOS which is Linux based it might be a good idea to add the Gamer Mode to the ESET Linux Antivirus. hxxp://store.steampowered.com/browse/linux/ hxxp://store.steampowered.com/livingroom/SteamOS/
