Default How long does BitTorrent usually take?

I'm Downloading a 1.2 GB game, and its taking like 3 days! Is that what it normally takes?

Personally, I find limewire pro is better (download pro from limewire free). Bit torrent is only ideal for the very latest games, but LimeWire has older software to offer too. Try it yourself!

Limewire is hilarious. You can pirate their software by using their software. Thats funny.
