Firewall edition is not a replacement for Windows firewall, but it works on top of it, giving you control over every network connection that processes make. This edition also gives you application execution control, which is an excellent hybrid of anti-exe and HIPS, most effective if you run the program in "Ask user" mode.
If you are looking to have proper control over what happens on your system, the Firewall edition is it.
