There is just a derp in the PDF file, Bitdefender is fully compatible with Windows 10. :) Final build is running as fine as previous beta builds.

When it comes to free AVs, Bitdefender is a pretty nice choice, I have to say.

The core protection is the same as paid version, right?
Bd has quite good signs & their proactive AVC is quite good.

I have used previous free version & liked it especially for average users, clean GUI, no ads/popups And core protection was the same as paid version as per Bd staff/forum.

I will give this new free a try & see.......
Good free protection for average users

Installer is app 232 MB, full offline signs?
And during download if net gets disconnected & you connect again, retry download starts the download fresh i.e no resume.
Damn, no offline installer?

And a weird thing happened here.
After 3rd system restart, I got a Bitdefender window downloading app 367 MB??? I disconnected the net.

Attached is the screenshot, you can see I have Bd free installed And the Bd download window downloading app 367 MB??? And I disconnected the net.
What/Why 367 MB download?

Hmm, it's very weird because the downloading window is from paid Bitdefender installer, not the free one. The installed of free version looks different.

Right

Right
I had installed the free version & install was successful. I browsed/used the system for an hour or so. I had done 2 system restarts previously. When after an hour of using system I just did a system restart again & got the download window And I disconnected the net.

I did system restart again & again got the 367 MB download window, this time I let the download continue. After completing the download, it mentioned unpacking files & then mentioned other Bd product installed & need to uninstall, I clicked Yes to uninstall And after uninstalling Bd free, it started to download Bd free again???

Reverted back to clean snapshot.
