Do these P2P things actually work?

    I've been trying out a few P2P prgrams out there, and I've tried to download some stuff, but nothing seems to work! The download just says "waiting", and sits there for an eternity. Does anybody have any luck with this stuff at all, or is it just some over hyped thing that doesn't really do anything?

    Which one are you using?

    All the programs that connect to the gnutella network are useless heaps of sh1t. morpheus, xolox, gnutella, + 1000 others.

    Kazaa Lite is OK ....but for albums, and rare tracks, SoulseeK is the shiz
  3. word. soulseek is where its at.
  4. I use E-Mule. Works everytime

    I use Kazaa lite. Works great for software.
  7. I tried soulseek. Too confusing to work. So I use Kazaa lite. That and patience can get about anything.;)

    i use Kazaa Light too
  9. i find with kazaah and morpheus there is WAY too much spyware being tacked onto the downloads ..... i now use emule plus (emule with eye candy) and have no problems with spyware and can pretty much get whatever i want :)

    spyware = EVIL

    Limewire connects to gnutella and it works just fine. Actually I've never found one that works better than Limewire and I've used all except E-Mule and Soulseek (never heard of either).

    Limewire is extremely difficult to get connected to, but once it's connected the downloads are lightning fast.
