I think I'm alone when I say I don't like to spend $15 on a new CD and only like two songs. By downloading and trying groups and records out, I can them make a fair determination if I want to buy a CD.

Your not alone, that's what I was saying above. I'll download songs and if I like four or more of them or so I'll buy it. But if its a cd that I just want to hear once or twice I'll just download the whole thing.

Besides I like haveing the cases and covers with the cds as well

I encourage you all to check out the new version of WinMX 3.1 - it includes several new features, making the best P2P program better.

I don't know why, but I just don't like WinMX.

I always have a longer time connecting to WinMX then id have with iMesh. I love iMesh once you remove its spyware componets is has a faster connection and can find anything you want on it.

KaZaA sucks, to put it lightly. It is LOADED with spyware, sneaky software that sends information about you behind your back. Download AdAware from Download.com to see what I mean.

As for WinMX (v3.2 was released today), try connecting through a secondary connection versus primary. It worked for me.

KaZaA Lite is the answer to KaZaA, that's what I use, it works wonders.
