German antivirus company Avira is discontinuing its Linux products in order to focus more on developing its Mac OS X and Windows lines. The company says small businesses and consumer systems "almost exclusively rely upon Windows or Mac operating systems" and that "Linux installations have been declining steadily for years".
In Germany they are very common and always get good reviews in tests (average reaction time of under 2 hours to new threats). I use their free product on my Windows installation and have used the Linux version on a USB live version for cleaning up heavily infected systems for a while (nowadays I always reinstall those systems).
