I'm starting to wonder about the validity of some of the stuff you post here. First the incedent about the false report of the security hole, now this. Regardless of what you may have read in the tabloids, Morpheus did NOT lock out users. Nor are they going to charge a subscription. Here is what's really going on: Morpheus, Kazaa, and Grokster operate using a closed protocol proprietary system called FastTrack. This software requires the company to purchase licenses for the software. Theoretically, if one end of the system goes down (Morpheus, Kazaa, or Grokster), the system would still be able to operate via the other systems. However, do to protocol changes which took place when the primary FastTrack core was updated, the Morpheus client (which, by the way may look similar to Kazaa and Grokster, is actually coded differently) was unable to connect. Thus, the Morpheus 2.0 client which was scheduled for a later release is expected to be released sometime in the weekend. As for the charging users, this is completely false. I spent about an hour in the Morpheus chatroom talking to various people and all confirmed that the repot is FALSE. Now, the new Morpheus client will be apart of the Gnutella network, rather than FastTrack. The reason is because of the issues expressed by Morpheus users, along with the incedents of the upgrades. Because Morpheus, as stated earlier, was modified to be different than the original software, any updates like the ones recently would potentially require a new client. This would be a big burdon on Music City. By switching, it also allows for Morpheus to operate via an open protocol. Similar to openNap, which Music City was based off of before Morpheus, the open protocol will allow users to operate over a much larger system. However, I hope they've done their homework. If they do it right, the new Morpheus will be better than ever.
