    So:-

    1.) Went to NG and dumped it after a month because you missed Bittorrent.
    2.) Went to NG and liked it but still use both.
    3.) Use NG and forget everything else.
    4.) You are such a big Bittorent fanatic that you will never go NG.

    NG stands for Newsgroup.

    Went to NG and dumped it after a month because you missed Bittorrent. For me

    Yeah NG usually maxes out speeds which is the bare advantage but so does BT when you have decent sites to access.

    Newsgroups are great for picking new stuff up to seed on bittorrent sites.
    Also you can get stuff on newsgroups that would otherwise harm your ratio to much to even consider. For example; I like to get a lot of HD stuff from newsgroups as downloading a 25GB movie on newsgroups is not really so much of a big deal but there is no way that I'd do that on any bittorrent site.

    There isn't really that much of a difference in pre-time on newsgroups and bittorrent nowadays.
    The only difference is that newsgroups contain some older or more unusual stuff that wouldn't be worth the bother of seeding on bittorrent.
    And that you have a greater quantity of stuff available all the time on bittorrent (on newsgroups stuff changes all the time, but there is always less than what bittorrent has at any one time).

    To be honest I prefer newsgroups for speed because I will always max out on them, while with bittorrent I will only max out on very popular torrents on the rarer trackers.

    I think the two go pretty well together.

    i use both bittorrent and newsgroups. if you have a good provider and know where to look there's much more available to you than on trackers at any one time. stuff like pda or gps software is much easier to find on newsgroups. you can find thousands of good quality audio albums in just one group one day and then thousands of different one in the same group the next day.
    i find that most trackers have pretty much the same stuff on them but their advantage is how long its there compared to newsgroups.
