Default What do you think is the best firewall?

I was wondering, what do you guys think the best firewall is? Those of you who have tried all the ones on the creation?

Windows XP firewall ofcoarse!




Kidding, don't use that! Better than software, try a router combined with a hub.

If you are looking for something free, you might want to try Zone Alarm or Peer Guardian...

Actually, get Peer Guardian AND Zone Alarm. =) http://phoenixlabs.org

Why a hub?

Anyways, IMO the best firewall is Cisco Pix, but they are pricy
