What Filesharing/P2P application do you currently use?

Hey eveyone...

It has been a loing time since I have used one...shoot I think it has been almost 2 years since I have a filesharing program.

So, help me out, I am a little out of touch. What is the latest and greatest in file sharing programs...

What do you use and trust? URLs would be helpful as well. Please also tell me what you like about the one(s) you recommend...

Thanks for your help...

I use an older version of BearShare that lacks the spyware that the newer versions contain. For local sharing, I use DC++. For gigantic file sharing, I use BitTornado.

Mod note: Keep the discussion on the programs, not on where/how to find 'stuff' once you've got the program.

I use:

eMule Plus. requires patience, but it's good for when all else fails.

SoulSeek. Music, baby.

IRC - google it.

eh, that's about what I need to mess with.

Oh, and Usenet, but that's a bit of a different thing. and likely not free, to use it's full potential.

I use two P2P programs, one for straight file sharing, one for BitTorrent.

I use Limewire as my P2P mainly beacuse it's open source and works well on my Linux box (Ubuntu in case you care), and I use Azureus as my BitTorrent client.

Both work pretty well, although I miss the halcyon days of the early versions of KaZaa when that was all there was and you could get ANYTHING/EVERYTHING.

Still, Limewire gets me most of what I want, and certainly everything I need, and Azureus is perfect for the monstrous downloads, like disk ISO files and things like that.

Azureus for bittorrent. Is a bit of a memory hog, but still the best client out there IMHO.
Limewire for when I just want to look for a certain song.

There are a vast number of people who are uninformed and heavily propagandized, but fundamentally decent. The propaganda that inundates them is effective when unchallenged, but much of it goes only skin deep. If they can be brought to raise questions and apply their decent instincts and basic intelligence, many people quickly escape the confines of the doctrinal system and are willing to do something to help others who are really suffering and oppressed." -Manufacturing Consent: Noam Chomsky and the Media, p. 195

Azureus for stuff I can.

Word to that :-)

It seems like most people use a good combo of popular p2p client + torrent client.

Bittorrent. I used to use usenet a *lot*, but one day a few months ago realized that I hadnt so much as touched it in a couple of months and cancelled my account.

Bittorrent, Azureus is the program I use. The only downside I see to torrents is the massive bandwidth hog. Does anybody know a way to download torrents without the massive strain on the network?

BitTorrent and private FTP servers, though I tend to use a lot more of the latter. The only real filesharing I do is TV episodes that I miss, these days.

I've tried mIRC and torrents and never could get the hang of them...

Azureus for Bittorent and Limewire for music. I used to use Ares for p2p but it just became too unreliable
If something seems too good to be true, then it probably is....

It's a type of file sharing. Basically, a person who has a file they wish to share creates a torrent - a hash of the file in question - and sends it to a tracker. Users who are interested in the file then download the torrent file (normally only a few kilobytes in size) and the torrent points them to the tracker.

All users on the tracker trying to get the file try to download bits and pieces of the file, and share what they have downloaded back out. So if I download the first 5KB of the file and you download the second 5KB, then we can share amongst ourselves without causing the host to send those 10KB.
