"AVG Anti-Virus Free Edition 8.5 for Linux (hereafter
abbreviated to AVG Free) isn't AVG's first scanner for Linux. The
company has released binaries for both 32-bit and 64-bit
architectures for Linux and FreeBSD, and the scanner itself is
loaded with features up to the brim. Despite all this, it is
utterly useless for the intended audience.
"As per AVG's licence requirements, the Linux scanner is meant
for private, and non-commercial use only. Fair enough. But without
a GUI to handle the dozen daemons and command-line scanning tools,
a normal desktop user would probably struggle."
