I would use Edonkey over anything as i have never had a virus from that EVER. Bitlord is also best for software.
No man, it depends on where you Download Limewire from dude.
http://www.limewire.com (SUCKS) go to http://www.limewire.org

A lot of people dont know that Limewire was developed under the GNU license. I have been working on a Version of LW withought the Nagware, but I still need help with it, in a couple of months I will be opening up a Sourceforge.net page for it Called LimeWire OSE (Open Source Edition)

I have used XP Pro on my old computer and XP home on this one currently. I honestly dont see any difference, XP home is just fine for me. I also got it for free from a friend, thats the most important.

I hated limewire and kazza, i use Ares sometimes if i decide to do any P2P which i dont do very often. Try out Ares sometime if your worried about virus's, i have never gotton one through that program.
