I don't P2P is bad for your computer, and your financial well being.

Alright, this thread is obviously going the wrong direction... What other P2P clients have you had luck with? Which ones performed best in your opinion? What did you really like about them, what didn't you like about them? Also, most mirrors to download the distros are usually slower than using a form of P2P downloading...

Frostwire is awesome. Its clean, simple to use, has an internal library, there nothing I dont like about it! Its a copy of the Limewire interface but much lighter with no nag screens. And a feature I like is it has skins! http://www.frostwire.com/

trpnmonkey41, it is much faster to download a 4 GB file from 100s of sources than one single server. It's actually preferrd:

Dude, cool it. They're just saying their opinions. Don't be so arrogant.

Anyway, LimeWire is pretty good. Actually, it's the best!:black:

I personally prefer torrents over P2P software.

I use Transmission on my Macbook as it is nice and light without being over-burdened with too many options.

I used ARES on my old PC, and i liked it, I could not find a version for my MAC, so I am using LimeWire, and I find it very slow. Is there ARES for a MAC?

I second the Frostwire vote for general P2P as well as the Transmission vote for torrents. If you have access to a private DC hub, Shakespeer is an excellent choice as well.

I like Transmission for torrents, but LimeWire is still the best for me!

I'll give FrostWire a try though. Is it free?

I visited the FrostWire website and I noticed.. it's built on the same engine as LimeWire. I'll stick to LimeWire instead.
