UseNet is an IRC server network that has quite a bit of warez on it. Not sure about usenext though...

UseNext is just a UseNet client, just like mIRC..

analogy:

BitComet is to Torrents as UseNext is to UseNet.

Ive never gotten files (binaries) to work right from IRC Channels.. Torrent programs are easier.

IRC is also used for chatting though (Internet Relay Chat).


Also the technology is different in that I believe that IRC binaries are a straight connection server->you. Torrents are distributed, so its you-> a bunch of different people (or servers)
