Update to NIS 2012?

I have Norton Internet Security 2011 and have a free upgrade available for NIS 2012 and I'm wondering if that will be a good idea.
Opinions welcome.

I upgraded last week with no problems. The Norton Community site have reported a few problems but nothing serious and they are being worked on. It is suppose to have upgraded security so I went with it.

Norton Internet Security / Norton AntiVirus - Norton Community

I always like to wait for a month or two before upgrading to the latest version of NIS. Most new programs have still got a few bugs, and it takes a couple of weeks until they're ironed out :-)
PCMag has listed it as their Editor's Choice :-)

You could also just trial it and see if you like it - if not, you can downgrade to NIS 2011 again and wait for a few more weeks.

The latest version is 19.1.1.3. You are required to run Live Update a few times with required reboot to get this updated version and also the update for tool bar for FF 7.0.1

OK, I think we should still wait until this is all cleared.
