The criteria for choosing a firewall given in this article are dubious at best. What matters is that you know what's going on and what a firewall-product/setup does, not what feels easy and cozy. Unconditionally recommending running some free personal firewall on a windows box is irresponsible. The implication that any system that ran without _any_ sort of firewall is probably infected and systems that did are probably safe is hair-raising. You don't do anyone a favour by oversimplifying things. Try harder to educate your readers.
