Morro - Better then OneCare so far, faster, small footprint, and works!
Zune HD - Not out yet, but for now I'm going to say it will be nice.
Windows 7 - I'm a power user (even though the forum disagrees )
Bing - I haven't typed "google.com" in over 3 weeks!
Morro - Bye AVG Free and Avast! Pro, Morro has taken over!
Zune HD - iHate my iTouch (actually, it's broken)

Bing - Haven't used google for anything but to compare results
Morro - Agreed
Zune HD - You touched your iTouch the wrong way so it hurt itself =P

Morro - So awesome.
Zune HD - I love my Zune 80, I can't wait to make some apps for the Zune HD too!

I would assume Microsoft would put it on their page and it would be a first come first serve kind of thing (like the original W7 Beta was).

SO is this software any good? I'm very interested yet skeptical. Norton survives solely on its expertise of anti virus, malware, spyware, trojans, etc. It sounds to me that microsoft just copied windows defenders UI, which it did, and threw a few more anti's to the list. Anyone seeing any difference or liking it more than norton for example?

So far it has caught things on my system, that AVG didn't pick up prior.

It has a small footprint in the System Resources. I like it more then any AV. I'd try it out if I were you, if you don't like it you can just reinstall whatever you want for AV. =P

Why do people keep saying WSE looks exactly like Defender UI? IT DOES NOT! gawd. Probably never even used Defender in first place...
