    I was doing some math and it seems that this is our 6 year anniversary TP release.


    We work in 2 week sprints. After every sprint, there is either a TP release or it is skipped for some reason. This means that there is roughly 26 TP releases every year. TP156 would then match 6 years of TP releases. The count started from 1 with the project that replaced our old client.


    The TP1 actually failed (too low quality), but TP2 was released. It lacked some fairly important features, like uninstallation; you could only install and upgrade. Is there anyone still with us who started from TP2?

    I'm also have just small experience with F-Secure/FS Protection TP. Smiley Sad

    But just want to say.. that for my opinion.. so "big" anniversary it's really great thing!


    And I want to say Thanks for FS Protection (F-Secure) team for ability to work with TPs releases and be part of current process. Such as ability to see how TPs goes to be with changes and when it's visible how.. step-by-step it's start be more powerful, than before and other related things.


    And it's will be so nice.. if there indeed have anyone, who can to feel this from TP2.


    Want to say all of nice words.. which can be there.. for current situation (six year anniversary tp release). :)

    I think will be more nice... if it will be  with long story after too.


    Sorry for not nice English.

    Upgrade went without a hiccup, trying a clean install took 2 reboots to perform, I filed a bug for this.
