    Acquisition also uses the Limewire core, just a nicer interface.

    I've used Acqlite. It's probably is as fast as LimeWire's "pro" version and does five searches at once.

    Boilerplate: Downloading music is legal in Canada.

    I used to use Limewire, but now I use Acquisition and I love it. Limewire usually returns more results, but I find Acquitition has a much higher success rate, and faster downloads.

    haha BitTorrent isn't P2P

    At first LimeWire seemed better because of more search results, but AcqLite is MUCH faster... wow, it's a keeper.
