    No, Peer-2-Peer downloading is not illegal. It's the *content* that people download that sometimes is illegal. BitTorrent, Kazaa, Limewire, Gnutella, etc, can all be used to download legitimate files (such as Linux distros or public domain media).

    Gonna go with champy here, I know that p2p is rampant, but in the least, may this be a warning, anyone who is computer literate here knows (ESPECIALY with limewire, java creates phydo-bytecode... easily 'de-compiled', and most if not all the other projects, open source) that information about how much and what you download is easy to collect. None of us care, but say some of the US might get on your ass. At the same time, theres plenty of legal and copyright free material avilable, (namely techno). Just don't be idiots, the magic number tends to be 1000

    LimeWire and Bit Torrent (the original client)

    I never understand why people need the Azureus client or w/e, just use normal BT.

    The simplest reason why I use azureus client,... it doesnt go on the taskbar when minimized :P

    Wow, I guess I'm the only one who uses Shareaza! :o

    KaZaA I wouldn't ever use due to its infuriating spyware. Other BitTorrent clients are redundant with Shareaza, since it's a BT/e-mule/gnutella1-2 client all-in-one thing. Connects to various servers and hubs, but unfortunately only for Windows. Sadly, the developers openly say they're not going to bother making a Linux version.

    Still, I've never tried any Linux p2p clients, given the fact that my distros are incredibly fleeting.

    I tend to use a program called Ares, for music is great, don't get any of the scrambling you get on Kazaa.

    Also use Bit Torrent, maybe eMule/eDonkey if either of them cannot find the required files.
