According to the forum it seems that PCTools had a change of mind...The firewall will continue to be free..
There is plenty of time still for Symantec to change their minds and drop the free version,Symantec did not buy PCTOOLS and then go on to give products away.
Symantec = corporate greed

I might agree with you if Symatec's track record was not littered with examples of them buying out competitors and immediately destroying said companies. They need to hook up with Steve Jobs, they both seem to have the same monopolist mentality.

It is not being discontinued, it is going to continue to be developed as a free standalone product.

Symantec does not = Corporate greed, Symantec= one of the major pioneers in security solutions and computer utilities and they continue to offer outstanding products as they have always done.
