    i would highly reccomend ares, very quick at finding files, and has a good source, and you dont get loads of rubbish like you do with shareaza, very worth looking into

    To caged

    lol there are legitimate reasons for using p2p y'know, underground mix's being one that i mainly use for, unsigned bands and copyright free music (it does exist y'know).... loads of LEGAL file share oppourtunities, also great for sample sounds... which is another use for me. A good mate and i often use samples i get on his keyboards and other equipment, but found the Shareaza app kinda dried up on results recently, hence the thread.

    Codecs and games DEMOS (yes legal ones hosted by the client) as they are faster to download than from alot of sites who charge a sub to have a fast download speed. I know that p2p has a reputation synominous to illegal activities, but is not always the case

    bittorrents are very easy to use just install a client such as bitcomet and then download a torrent file and open it.

    Sorry about that, I no longer have any doubt that you want to get your public domain files off of P2P.

    Personally I use uTorrent, it's simplicity incarnate. Only 150K and a very small memeory footprint when runing. Ok so it doesn't have all the bells and whistles, but seen as I'm only a 'every now and then' P2P user it suits me just fine.

    I also use a record store (online of course), but for getting legal torrents such as OpenOffice I use uTorrent!

    I'll stick with my record store. The latency's pretty high but the bandwidth is amazing. ;)

    /Will finally get to 13 Terabytes uploaded via BitTorrent this afternoon.

    Porn, does it need asking? And yeah I use Bitcomet too, I just think that the stuff on the trackers is updated more frequently.

    I use eMule, with little problems. I particulary adore the fact that I can be on the bus, think of a song and have it downloaded by the time I get home - courtesy of MobileMule. :cool:

    Having said that, I'm constantly open to better applications.
