    Best p2p file sharing
    I used to use Bearshare Pro (obviously not legit) when I had windows. However, they do not support Mac OSX.

    I was wondering what programs you guys use, Limewire is a flop compared to it, so I was hoping for something = to or > than.

    Any suggestions?

    Sadly, if you're looking for a reliable p2p program for the Mac, then your best bet would be Limewire. Unfortunately the others don't attract peers, besides "Poisoned" which is a worthy download. It just depends what network your trying to connect too really (Gnutella, etc.)


    Torrents are the way forward!
    Apple Mac troubleshooter/maintenance pro.
    Audio engineer/producer;
    Logic 8 pro.
    Pro Tools pro.

    Yeah the Gnutella network.

    And I love torrents but sometimes I am just looking for like a single song that I can't find in torrents. Mostly random techno tracks, like one I got off of Bearshare or Limewire a long time ago but cannot find anywhere else ;(
