[poll id=”4″] [poll id=”5″] [poll id=”6″]

Not surprisingly, us frugal dotTechies like the free software =). However, if I may provide a word of advice: while I am not saying you have to spend money to get good security software (you don’t – you can get excellent security software for free [2]), if you do spend money on software, security software are always a worthy investment.

Thank you to everyone that participated – the response was astounding. Feel free to express your thoughts in the comments below.
