I have it on 20+ including file server version with no issues.
I used to use mail server version around 2001-2002 again with no issue, it even found attachments with viruses that Norton did not (on the senders side) course who's to say it wasn't the users fault.
I have never had a virus and enjoy the avg server App that handles the clients (installation, point of update, reports / schedules etc...).
And of course, I have a boss who loves golf and following any link offered up in a dumb joke/porn email. He would be the guy that clicks Antivirus 2009 ads and get the associated malware... well he would be had we not installed AVG internet suite (not just anti-virus, worth the difference in price).
It's worth it, there's plenty of information online though to make an educated decision and I think they have trialware.
To me, they are accredited/tested/certified by the same groups so it's ability as a product is not in question.

Wow, that's way cheap. Suspiciously cheap. For 90 computers, the
corporate edition is $450. AVG would be $1667. Anybody know how it
compares, performance-wise? I get the impression that AVG is better at
the actual virus detection, but it's hard to find actual hard data.
Of course, NoScript and AdBlockPlus go a long way toward avoiding the
problem in the first place...
