Default What P2P system do....uh, would you use?

Since I know none of us here would engage in illegal activities such as file sharing, Ill just make this a hypothetical question? If I did currently use a P2P, I would be using Win MX and Soulseek. So if any of you guys were illegally downloading files (you heathens) what system would you use.

If I happened, by chance, to use a peer to peer file sharing program. I would use WinMx

WinMX is one of the best (so I hear), but lately I've 'heard' that people are finding music better with the Ares Lite program... google for it if you want to hear more..

As amusing as Mike's framing of the topic is, let me remind everyone that P2P file sharers are NOT ILLEGAL! You just can't download copy-protected items using it. And of course Mike (and the rest of us) don't use it for illicit purposes.

That said, I keep meaning to start using Bearshare, my best bud swears by it, but for the moment I still have dusty ol' Kazaa, which I don't recommend, even if they still do have the most users/most files.

i have Ares, WinMX, and Kazaalite on my computer, and kazaalite is the only one that will let me connect to download anything, but you have to download a song 5 times just to get a good quality song that will play the whole thing all the way through.

anybody have any ideas that might let me connect?? please help lol

try uninstalling them and then reinstalling it again. I have to do that to my WinMx a lot.

Speaking of Ares, anyone know some sites i could dl it for free. Everywhere else wants some kind of fee. (hey, im cheap! )

It's okay to admit you use P2P. By doing that, you aren't admitting anything illegal. They are 100% legal, it's just what you trade on there that can go into illegal territory. Be very careful with what you install, these programs are riddled with spyware, especially KaZaA (*cough* Kevin *cough*), but there are "Lite" versions of some of them that have ads and spyware removed. Of course, the purest and safest way is BitTorrent, so consider that. It's much bigger than any KaZaA-like program these days. It works best for entire albums of music, large movies, and TV shows (what I primarily use it for).

yeah Bittorrent is great for the large stuff, while WinMX and Ares Lite are the two I prefer for smaller downloads, as you'll get them quicker, usually, and those two contain no spyware.
