Microsoft Security Essentials

After hearing about and reading about Microsoft's "Morro" anti-virus, now called "Microsoft Security Essentials", I've decided to download and install it. If you want to download it, just search Google (or look at the Wikipedia page for it).

The install was rather quick and painless on my XP machine. Just "verify" my "genuine windows", let the anti-virus update and do a quick scan. Boom, done. It was rather fast and doesn't bog down the system like other anti-virus apps do. If it was cheap it'd be a good anti-virus app. For free, though? It's great.

What's your thoughts on it? Like it? Hate it?
