From what I understand, they offer (used to offer) a basic version that was good for a single application for free. They also have an enterprise version with which you could make multiple sandboxes, or something like that, kind of like the free and paid versions of Sandboxie.

Since you brought up Cruelsister I remembered her post about Shade. No clue if it was fixed or not.

e.g:"As examples, looks like a Service can be created by an application run from within the sandbox, and even worse it seems that a sandboxed process can both fork and autostart a legit Windows file."

CM- Remember that Comodo is an Auto-Containment system. This is of extreme importance!

For instance, plop your browser into Sandboxie and anything that arises out of the use of the browser will be contained with the ability of reversal; but run some malware file without directing Sandboxie to contain it and you are lost. CF, on the other hand, will sandbox that file no matter where it comes from and WITHOUT user input. An important and useful difference.

Of the few remaining, Comodo is probably the most secure. But most people won't take the time, don't know how, or don't know they can adjust settings.
A properly configured Comodo firewall is formidable. I'm not saying it can't be beaten. Anything can. But I gather it isn't easy.

Not most secure but very hard to break.

Question about Sandboxie: it is free now and will be open source (in future): I am not a programmer, so apologize when this question is stupid

Open source means everyone can (re)view the source code. Would that give hackers an extra option to find vulnabilites?

As said I am not a programmer: how is the vetting/approval of open source software managed. Is is possible that hackers can slip-in code to create backdoors et cetera. How is the promotion of newly added code managed (e.g. from test to beta to production)? Which authority approves a change?

A hacker will run a debugger/ fuzzer and disassemble it anyway if it was closed software of course but open source would save them much time especially running an old hardware .
But it's very important for bringing more security researchers to protect it .
So as long a program developer does very hard work hardening the program and security researchers find where the developers made mistakes and you will have a very good security 👍.
But unfortunately reality is opposite.
Developers cut corners abandoned quickly , get mad of all the requests of supporting making open source and don't give a about it.
