I would say excellent. I have used iTunes....the quality of the download is a lot better. You don't get some botched rip that someone wasn't paying attention to.

I would think one lends itself to the other, kinda like two peas in a pod. This is not to say you do, but Im willing to bet peso's to donuts everyone else does.

they suck. I have heard for years that Itunes was the best program.
but the have very little R&B or rap which make them useless for me. napster get the rights for artist first, so say you want a song that you heard 20 years ago from a 1 hit wonder, napster is a little service then.

I Miss AudioGalaxy (now Rhapsody). they had almost every song ever made. file sharing was legal then.

nah, it wasn't legal, it just wasn't illegal I know I know, fine line, but it's still visable.

Ya, if some bands *cough*metallica*cough* hadn't b17c43d, everything would be cool.

Right on target !
Download Metallica just to spite those babies.
They also have tried sueing other bands for using
the same cords as they do... They say, thats the metallica "sound".

oh oh dear. Pre-Lars, things were great. but, i dunno, maybe he poisoned the rest or subjected them to mind control.

Funny, I don't hear of a lot of other bands/artists out there b17c41ng because their songs are downloaded. I have/still download and i still will pay to see a concert.

The exact same selection now since Limeware is making every single file on their network carry a valid licence from the auther.

As for the weird number language is it just lazy/slang or trully leet .

Oh, as far as not finding P2P in longhorn, from my understanding it is not installed by default.

add it via Add/Remove Programs --> Add/Remove Windows Components. Install the Peer-to-Peer component. That will add the p2p.dll needed for running the samples.

just so ya know... as far as P2P, I stick with bit torrent. Mostly for obscure or no longer publised materials, however I AM guilty of downloading stuff that isn't, but not often.
