    Emule, Limewire Pro, Azureus, Ftp Servers ... After about ten years of research, and using the biggest crapware on the market (ie, bareshare, winmx, etc) I can come to this conclusion. I still say that nothing will ever beat what Napster and Scour were .. There will never be anything that comes close to what they were ...

    Kitties trained to break into ppl's houses and swipe harddrives out of computers. J/k :p


    Seriously I don't believe in using p2p software. There's too many risks with getting malware (either from malicious ppl loading it up onto the network, or stuff bundled in with the p2p proggie) from their use to justify being bothered with em.

    Before I started getting downloads off newsgroups, I used Bittorrent. Newsgroups is easier and it's a lot nicer (for me, anyway) to download at 600k a second and not worry if you have enough people to download from.

    I tend to be a total control freak when it comes to my computer(or anything related to my computer). So I don't like keeping anything on it which I know has spy/adware in it or that can lead to that kind of stuff finding its way onto my computer. So I don't bother with anything like that anymore. I have tried several in the past but quickly removed them either cuz I couldn't connect to anything with them(and yes I did remember to connect to the internet before trying them), or they contained a load of crapware in them and I didn't like the fact that stuff was on my comp.
