I haven't used Kazaa in a few years, but be careful - it had LOADS of Spyware. Kazaa Lite was better at the time, but no idea how it is these days.

Use torrent. Find the artist that you want, and with a program like utorrent, you could select which files out of that one album you want and just get it.

I find it's a lot more easier than using limewire... limewire lags too much for me.

Limewire and Kazaa are big pieces of shit.

And folks this isn't referring to downloading anything copyrighted - I'm talking about peer-to-peer downloads of information here.

Use Bittorrent. http://www.utorrent.com

I miss WinMX
I got some awesome stuff off of it.


I've only heard bad things about Kazaa.

^WinMX's still shut down right? I remembered one day I went to log in and there was this blurb about it being shut down by the man. Something like that.

If anyone's going to use Kazaa, they should go for kazaa-lite. Of course anything better is to not use Kazaa at all lol.

Yes, last that I heard.
I had the same thing happen, I went to go in one day and it wouldn't work.
And it still didn't work the next day, and then I found out.


Apparently there was some 'underground' project to get it restarted up on multiple servers or something (I'm not tech savvy), and I followed the instructions but it never connected/worked.
It just kept telling me to be patient.


So I moved on and got Limewire, but it doesn't have half of the rare/interesting/random finds that I used to get offf WinMX.


</sob story>

That sure looks like it, my good friend whom I knew and loved, but I hadn't heard about it being opened again.

I'd be careful though, there are fakes out there...

I use a program that most people seem to have never heard of called Ares:

http://aresgalaxy.sourceforge.net/

Sometimes it's a bit tough to find rarer songs, but so far it hasn't frustrated me much.

I second Soulseek. It has a nice wishlist feature that continuously searches for whatever you put on it as long as the program is open.
