I've used it for a few years, primarily for mail filtering. I had a few 
problems with crashes a couple of years ago, but its been very stable since.

I haven't noticed any false positives - I don't actually run any windows 
systems or feed them, so I wouldn't have noticed the false negatives if 
they occur.
