If a forumer is using an inferior product, some of us feel obliged to offer our opinions. Sorry my contibution was slightly astray from the OP and i'm especially sorry it offended you so much. Now that I know you are one of the moderators here, I'll watch my behavior carefully.


I'll overlook what is coming across as sarcasm.

Don't think the last line in my previous comment was aimed solely at you, it was meant to be in general to the whole topic.

While everyone is entitled to their opinion, no one except for myself actually contributed anything to the initial inquiry.  I have seen plenty of times in this forum that anytime MSE and WD are mentioned, it goes into a full on bash fest.  The take away?  You have haters and people that have no problems with it.  It seems to be a very polarizing opinion.  But that horse has been beaten to death many times over, much like many other topics (EVF vs OVF, Windows 8, etc.).

If you constantly bit-torrent, surf porn, and love going to the deepest, darkest, dirtiest corners of the web them maybe MSE/WD isn't for you.  Then again, if that is the case, you are better off working through a VM that receives a snapshot before going on adventures.  That is probably your safest bet.  For everyone else, MSE/WD should be more than capable to handle what is thrown at it all the while keeping a small footprint and producing a minimal amount of false positives.
