This week for OCC Poll #4, we're talking firewalls. More specifically, what type of firewall do you run? This is a pretty hot topic in the tech community, so it should be interesting to see how this poll pans out.

Like all Official OCC Polls, this one will be over in one week ;)

Linksys BEFSR41

If I had to choose a software one I would use Zonealarm pro or Black Ice ISS

I won't touch Zone Alarm anymore. It's a bloated POS.

I use a router w/ NAT and Comodo Firewall.

I use zonealarm and sometimes my router.

And i dissagree with that comment. the new zonealarm is very unbloated and quick.
