Good Afternoon Everybody from Sunny Singapore!

I have just deployed pfSense Community Edition version 2.4.2 firewall
on my home desktop computer (Intel Pentium Dual Core E6300 @ 2.8 GHz,
Intel DQ45CB Motherboard and 1 TB SATA Harddisk) not too long ago.

More recently, I have upgraded my home-based pfSense firewall
appliance to Community Edition version 2.4.3.

I have Snort Intrusion Detection System (IDS) installed as well.

Questions are:

(1) Is pfSense, coupled with Snort IDS, the best open source
firewall/IDS/IPS in the world?

(2) Is pfSense on par with commercial firewall appliances, including
Cisco ASA, Cisco Sourcefire, Fortigate, SonicWall, etc?

Please advise.

Thank you.
