These programs are used for such things so they can not be discussed on OCN.
I use uTorrent to download Linux distro's and other files all the time. I am in no way/shape/form doing anything illegal.

Until we start talking about downloading copyrighted media it is not against the TOS.

I was just giving a heads up to some of the people on ocn that these programs are illegal in most ways other than sharing the work of yourself.

I will not bash any others or state the rules for the sake of other users.

If it comes the point where this thread needs to be removed Im sure a MOD would take care of it.

Im heading out over to the nvidia thread. The last thing I want is to be bashed on for making a statement. Though it always turns to that.

Perhaps your right. But IF some users see this thread and now know of ways to get Ilegal Materals that makes more piraters in the world today. Thus the economy will fall harder and harder.

Not trying to bash you, just making it clear is all. I would love to see more people realize that torrenting has its benefits too

This thread is fine. Filesharing and use of torrents is perfectly legal. The content of the things being downloaded is what is not. So far no content is being mentioned.

P2P programs aren't illegal themselves, so I don't see why this thread should be closed. It would be like saying we can't talk about alcohol because you could do illegal things with it. Anyway here are what I think the best P2P programs are:

emule: Great for finding something rare, the trade off is that it is usually pretty slow (like 5 - 20KB/s for rare items).

utorrent: The best torrent program out there, if you like using torrents (this is what I use most of the time), then this is the program for you. It doesn't use up a ton of resources, it's straightforward, and has all the features you need. Azereus is good, but it is insanely buggy and slow (built on Java).

Giganews: If you don't mind handing over $19.99 per month, this usenet service offers great download speeds and has a large variety of files. I usually get around 10 Mbps/s, but probably faster if it weren't for my downloading laptop's subpar 802.11b wireless connection.

Good luck and I can give you a guide to set up each of those clients if need be.

I have heard good things about emule, but haven't tried it yet. I am rarely looking for something rare, lol.

QFT!!!! Many up and coming bands even release their albums free directly from them to get their publicity out there. File sharing is in no way illegal, UNLESS you share copyrighted material. If the owner of the material states that you can share the material, it is usually stated on the owner's website (assuming he/she has one) or in the license that comes with it. (take Linux for example) It is when you all ASSUME that we will begin to talk about sharing copyrighted material, that the responses begin to take on an animosity tone to them.
