    What do you use BitTorrent for?
    I know that a lot of people use it for illegal file trading, but I am wondering what LEGAL ways people use BitTorrent.

    Other than downloading Linux ISOs I do'nt know what other uses there are, so I am curious.

    Well, it is legal here to download music, but I don't think you'd count that.

    Well, 100%, non-borderline legal stuff would be mostly Linux distro ISOs
    PC: Intel Core 2 Duo 2.66 GHz, 2 GM RAM, Total 750 GB HDD, Windows Vista Business (For gaming), Ubuntu 8.04 Hardy Heron (64-bit), Slackware 12 (For GTK# coding)
    Mac: 1.66GHz, 1GB RAM, 60GB HDD, Mini

    I once tried to use BitTorrent but couldn't for the life of me get it to work, even though I knew the torrents had to be found first. It was like trying to learn another language on your own....I got totally lost....:radioacti
