Pgl/pglgui?

PeerGuardian for Linux is pretty useful for me. Can it be added to the list?

I like SophosUTM and Pfsense personally, but neither show Most of the listed ones I have never heard of. Have to look into them.

I've had difficulty making much use out of Metasploit, perhaps because I just don't have the time to tinker; looks like an awesome tool. Wireshark gets my vote in this list... because I actually get something useful out of it on a regular basis.

ClamAV has been a thorn in my side for years ... I was so excited to dump that thing. Can I make a negative vote?

Hmm.... sshguard should be on this list. Superior alternative to fail2ban, imho. But, alas, it is not, so it comes down to Wireshark or Bro-IDS. Hmmm... I'll leave you guessing ;-)

Oooh. Poor Bro. I guess you know how I voted now. Bro is awesome though. Interstingly, snort appears to be fading to near irrelevance here.
