We'd like to move away from our Sonicwall, and get in to something that can be virtualized to eliminate the hardware appliance.  Does anyone have a recommendation in this regard?

It will be a VM with 3 NICs - 2x WAN (redundant, but not load balanced) and 1x LAN.

Checkpoint is out of our price range, so we are left with:

Forefront TMG (donated because we are nonprofit)
Endian
ClearOS
Untangle
Vyatta

The general populous seems to think having an MS box connected directly to the internet is a horrible idea, but I have yet to see any recorded evidence of ISA/TMG being problematic.  Anybody else?
