Limewire, Bittorrent and Xfactor all spring to mind...

I'm sure we don't need to go over the legalities of P2P..

Just your warning!

bittorrent and tomatoe torrent are great, limewire is fast for individual songs, but the tracks are often encoded too low. with the other 2, you get full albums at a time including album covers and such, high encoded. xnap is pretty good too.

I would recommend poisoned as a better p2p, it's been around for a while, it's stable, functional, no spyware! and connects to all the networks including Windows - PC users

Torrents are good for fast access to large files, but you can search for .torrent links with poisoned and get loads of links

poisoned is not good, its just like aquisition, a little different, but either way, they both get poor results, and even poorer amount of files actually download.
