Software Dedicated Computer Firewall

Does anyone have any experience using Astaro USG? They have a free home version that works up to 50 IP's. I was using IPcop for the longest time as Smoothwall wasn't hardware compatible with my computer. IpCop worked rather well but had a very plain interface and didn't seem to be updated much any more. Comming across Astaro, it looks like this is a very full featured Firewall and is recommended by the podcast "Security Now"

Just wondering what everyone's thoughts were?

You know smoothwall and ipcop are pretty much the same thing right?

I'm on the side that a firewall should be firewall and not much else. Why does it need to have some flashy web interface? I run Pfsense here at home and I rarely hit the web interface unless I need to change something. It gives me what I need. Four zones, web, firewall, squidguard, portal and vpn. Add all the flash you want if the core is solid it doesn' t matter to me.
