Audio Galaxy deserves it's own remembrance day.
If you were careful and sensible about it, you could sort a lot of the crap out on Limewire and get something decent. BUT, saying that, it was never worth taking that risk.
It is the same now with topinweb, full of decentish music but more malware than a malware factory in malwareshire.
Lets be honest, for less than £2 for a legal download, It's madness that someone would risk their hard drive for a freebie.
well soulseek is the only p2p i use, and that's rare these days. i used to have winmx but i didn't rate it, kazaa was virus central too and i didn't bother with it beyond 2004. i usually use forums like soundarena where they rapidshare or zippyshare everything. i think that's the way it's gone with music at least these days.
