I think that you are in developpement of this options, but I would only add my opinion !

I work in entreprise and we regard to find the most free and "good" solution. The 4 things that ClamWin should innovate to help people to switch through ClamWin are:

1- Add the Realtime scanning.

2- Add a Email plugin for Thunderbird. For those are wanted a complete suite of free applications !

3- Disallow "Quit/Exit" application for Windows user group (non-admin group) and protect by password the options.

4- Allow import/export config with a easy way (via a button in option) for massive installation.

Hi,

Thanks for sharing your thoughts, we will make note of them. Here's some quick comments on the status:

Points 1 and 2 on your list are being worked on.

Point 4 should be doable once the new version is ready, because it makes use of xml-configuration files. We could add an option to pass a command line parameter to the installer that points to a configurationfile of your choice. You'll have to wait until version 1 is released though (and there is still no release date for even alpha or beta versions, in case you'll ask).

The "Enterprise administration" features are on the whish-list, but they won't be around for any time soon (unless a lot of developers suddenly volunteer to help). We'll have to stabilize the new build (version 1) and localizations before we can even think about such a feature.

Here is my opinion

I hope this never gets implemented, or if it does it needs to be able to be turned off.

Once again this for me is of no use.

3- Disallow "Quit/Exit" application for Windows user group (non-admin group) and protect by password the options.


Again no use to me

4- Allow import/export config with a easy way (via a button in option) for massive installation.


And again no use to me.

The biggest thing for me is the ability for Clamwin to be run as a service. This is because I use Clamwin on our mailserver, so things like plugins and realtime scanning are of no concern.

Funny how peoples requirements can be so differant.

Keep up the good work
Michael

Hi,

ClamWin 1.0 will include a service. And yes, it's not easy to fulfill everyone's requirements..... Wink

Thanks for the support,
