In the past has done things like bundling their toolbar with other applications and not offering an "opt-out" feature. Basically they are spyware that borders on malware. The presence of in a security product is a real cause for concern because they are interested only in marketing, not in guarding the privacy of the user. If you want more information just do a Google search and you will understand why people are upset that Symantec has partnered with them.

I tried it and was impressed by their product this time. Less memory usage, strong AV engine, frequent updates, etc. I you want a paid AV, then either NOD32 4 or Norton 2010 will be a good choice.

They usually limit a build to 14 days and release a new one near the end so you can keep using the product without interruption. This makes sure all the beta testers use the latest builds.
