more than likely but for those who use it and miss it try (wouldn't touch the limewire family for the reasons given above) frostwire - the free ware version that uses the same systems and the same files are available as is is a fork of limewire and is still funcional for now! However there are better systems available that are more secure for the user it is just knowing about them.
Anyway back to limewire there is now a Limewire pirate edition that has been released by an undercover team so limewire lives :pirate :pirate :pirate

I use Torrent mainly for TV and the odd film. I tend to buy my music these days (iTunes).

I used to love WinMX Steve. Never really got into Limewire - everything seemed to be fake.

Audiogalaxy was amazing, I really miss that. I loved that you could join groups and then they would just send around music that you might like - discovered a lot of good stuff through that.

I've never used Limewire, wouldn't touch it for all of those reasons. Soulseek is a good one, especially for electronic/dance stuff but seems to have gone off the boil now.

Legally, I quite like Spotify - has most stuff on there to stream for free (but you get really annoying adverts if you don't pay). I read that it has lost a LOT of money though so how long it is going to carry on for I really don't know.
