But a nice UI is important to entice home users who may base their desicion on a product less on the technical features and more on the ease of use/looks.

There are a few things I miss, such as;
- the pause / start buttons Lucianbara mentioned,
- the small progress scan bar, which i would like to see in the main "protection" window when scans are running.
- the network activity no longer lists active network applications, only connections and ports, I Really miss this! and I would also like to see this in the main "protection" window as well.
- the "your computer is well protected" message seems "concealed" in the top window banner.
about the new interface is that clicking any heading under "protection" brings up a simple, clear and consistent selection of commands: Configure (stop/pause) and Open Report.
What I dont like
is that is that any other heading besides "protection" (Scan, Update,Reports and so on), the selection of commands, although fairly consistent, is not quite as intuitive (muddled). For instance, to open a Scan Report you must mouse "underline" the "last start" date and click... but accidently clicking anywhere else in the shaded area will start a scan!
Also it seems to me that the Help and Settings buttons are out of character/out of place and maybe should be under support?
What I "wish"
I could do is add items or "customise" what I can open from the right click K tray icon. For instance, add "pop-up" or "banner" report to Network Monitor.
And by the way, I really like the additional tray "news" message! >it said updates are available via FTP! WoW!
I hope my feedback is helpful.

It seems you have been busy on this subject of late Pipkin.
Noticed your topics, but haven't replied. My computers are pretty plain and boring really.
It seems a rather mixed batch of feelings, and some items are missed.
The stop/pause/start buttons were a suprise when I first saw them, and do like them, but I won't loose any sleep over them.
The issue with traffic monitor, would love to see this gain more importance.
The newer popups I like too, but with mixed feelings. It is new after all.
I dont think it should go back, but some items do need a touch more emphasis
as some have pointed out already, the flowing colours are a great touch, but make understanding the interface a bit harder,
simply because items dont stand out as much.
Guess none of that has really helped, might have confused the thoughts more.
