Default File Sharers

Being the music addict that I am, and having the low budget that I do, I like to get music online, preferably for free. [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img] Can anyone offer me advice? Is WinMX evil? What about Kazaa? Any input is appreciated. Thanks!

I'd advice you to download WinMX, it has worked fine for me, whereas Kazaa is full of spyware. I think Kazaalite should be non-spyware, but I've never had to try it because WinMX works for me.

You can find there many rare recordings and videos and of course all the newest hits and misses. [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img]

Go on, start sharing!

Spiffy, y'all, thanks! I have downloaded WinMX and quite a few songs already. I can now cheaply support my habit. [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img]

WinMX works very well for me. MissusLennon,it all depends on your speed,and the speed of the other person,plus surfing the web while doing it slows it down more...

I love WinMX most, although it is very very slow in most cases.

yesterday I experienced a weird thing. I was downloading songs from Madonna's Americal Life album, both at WinMX as Kazaa.

The WinMX downloads all had, only, Madonna saying

What The Fuck Do You Think You're Doing

whilst the Kazaa ones were OK.

<font size="2" face="Tahoma, Arial, sans-serif">That was how I was when I first started downloading from WinMX(especially videos). I was downloading like crazy. Now I am a bit more careful because we have a cable company that keeps a VERY close watch on everyone's uploads and downloads and found myself without internet service for a while! [img]graemlins/images/icons/frown.gif[/img]

I would say that WinMX is the best, especially for Beatles, George and older music. At least I have found it that way. But yeah, like others have said, it is slooooow.

<font size="2" face="Tahoma, Arial, sans-serif">Yes, [img]graemlins/laugh5.gif[/img] I had read somewhere that Madonna had put that up on the internet to trick people who were trying to download her new album before it had been released. [img]graemlins/laugh3.gif[/img]

WINMX is slow but you can get so much rare stuff.
It`s great as far as I`m concerned.
