Norton Internet Security 2007 open beta

I was browsing through the Symantec website and found that Norton Internet Security 2007 is now available for download through their open beta test.  If any of you have tried it, please feel free to let me know how bloated it is over last years and the years before that.  I’m sure there are some really useful features that they’ve implemented over the past year.

Here are the system requirements:
