I had avoided BD for awhile as several years ago I installed BD on win8.1 (wife's) and I think it was older or mediocre hardware and BD was problematic on that pc. Now more time using the current vm with BD free and wow, I think it's the lightest I've seen! Also running Andy's SWH and Dan's WLC (stand-alone). Very pleasantly surprised by how good this setup is. Perhaps only "con" is NO safepay, or rather it's not enabled on free version, but not sure how important that is?? (I can always pay on Host running ESET) BD free is becoming my new fav.Is it still light? That's good news, when I used it from 2016-2020 it was light, in old laptop with SSD, it makes me want to go back to using BD as the main AV, but with MD and Emsisoft, it's hard for me to change. With the tool of @Andy Ful the Hard_Configurator I think I settled in, what I wanted was a firewall, but I believe that windows is enough for me and I still have F-Secure license until 2027 that I'm not using. AVS options have a range for me to choose, but unfortunately we only install one at a time.
