    Well it's been ages since I've used Limewire, and I can't believe that every time you turn around to download an mp3 it's corrupted with a virus.

    P2P apps are really starting to suck big time.

    I'm back with SoulSeek, glad you don't seem to run into issues on this application, thank goodness.

    I wanted to know, any other clients like SoulSeek that are more community based with better quality downloads, because many times older tunes I'm looking for aren't easy to get on SoulSeek...

    THANKS

    P.S. Forget Private Torrernt Trackers and DC++ been there done that...

    As a mainstream network, there's still AresGalaxy which you could try.

    Gnutella really seems to be polluted, if I'm online then about 97 % of the search requests I get are for financial / confidential information.

    Soulseek is really the best p2p app that I've came across so far(I'm just about to try the Linux version Nicotine). But I've been using newsgroups lately for all my music. I download mainly FLAC. And I've been able to find just about everything I was looking for in FLAC format.

    So if you have access to Usenet then it's something to definitely try. It's really nice having to upload back using this method.

    Maybe he's using the free version. I've been using pro for years and it works alright. There's alot of corrypted songs out there but it usually catches them.
    See ya in another life, brother.

    I've not gotten viruses from Limewire in the couple years that I used it either. So I really don't know what all that talk is about. But there's absolutely no reason to use Limewire when there's Soulseek. It's just all around the better way to download music.
