Default Limewire Alternative

ok before a mod closes this i would liek to say there are perfectly legal reasons for programs like limewire and old morpheus, like sharing photos with your friends on limewire,

ok enough of that im getting tired of the slow download speeds on limewire and i realise thats mostly to do with the people im downloading but i have seen this new "frostwire" which is ment to be better ?

i have been on limewire pro for some time now and since compaq thought it would be a good idea to reformat my laptop i was about to reinstall it and thought to myself is there anything else i could use and the best option looks like this frostwire so does n e 1 have experience with it ? is it a good idea to get or can you suggest something better ?

thanks in advanced

well bearshare pro isnt bad either, it costs money, but you could "acquire" it through other means :P but i think frostwire is your best bet, and frostwire uses the same network as limewire

soulseek is great because you can download entire albums at a time

Well, there is a program called SolarSeek but its only for mac. its great p2p,very fast, easy to use. also frostwire IS limewire just an open source version. it was started after a bunch of limewire employees got pissed of when limewire took out open source so they stole the code of limewire and made frost wire..either way the gnutella network isnt that great in the first place.
