This is much like the Ford or Chevy discussion. Both work well with XP and have updates when needed or such.

Updates are driven by factors that are driven to a schedule of "daily, weekly, monthly" but by when some malware writer lets a new bug loose that makes an impact.

Free AVG is noteworthy as well.

You can find out which you think is better by downloading the trial versions.
