Anyone using Avira anti-virus?

Is anyone using Avira anti-virus software? Looks like from this test report http://www.av-comparatives.org/seiten/ergebnisse_2008_05.php that it had one of the highest detection rates and processes scans the nearly the fastest. Price is pretty good at roughly $25 for 1 year. Curious to hear from any actual users of Avira.

I've been using Avira on a couple of my computers for over a year now, haven't had a single virus infection go beyond Avira telling me it's there and gone (even using the free version). Switched from AVG to Avira way back when and as soon as I switched Avira found 7 viruses that had been chillin' on my computer the entire time, never looked back.
it hardly has a footprint (few k maybe), and it scores major geek points by putting the title of it's scan window as Luke Filewalker. Only had 1GB of RAM in my machine until recently running Vista HP and barely noticed it.
