Ha, limited download, it is already on all the torrent sites. And, if I was a betting man a guess of around 75,000 has already downloaded it and are running it at this time (me included).

HEY! this thing ate Windows Defender! i cant find it anywhere....

i like that it only uses ~26MB of ram, where as N32 was ~40-50, Avast was ~35
