Quality FREE Macintosh File-Sharing Programs? (similar to Kazaa)

My brother is lending me his iMac and I just hooked up high-speed internet. I must say that I’m disappointed that I can’t use Kazaa.com because it is such a great program. I am skeptical of all of the other similar programs I’ve found for Mac and thought that I’d check with all of you before downloading something.

Thank you!


SWEET MERCIFUL WEEPING LADY OF LOURDES. Why in the world would you start a thread like this? KNOWING FULL WELL that it’s going to be locked?

Limewire is what I use on my Ibook and it works quite well.

I must admit that one of the first things I do when I come to the SDMB is go to GQ and read what great comments manhattan has when he closes threads. I got to this one just a little early. Waiting…waiting…

Egads! I’m going to get spanked. I’m trying to delete my post before the omnipotent Manny sees it, but it won’t let me!

Let me just ball up here and wait for the inevitable…

jarbabyj: It will be closed, but not before he gets an answer, you see. I think that’s why the OP doesn’t care that it will be locked. Damn rulebreakers.

Didn’t know that this was anything that would get deleted. Sorry! But thanks for the help anyway.

Quickly, before the Wrath of Mod descends…

The words “Kazaa” and “quality” don’t belong in the same post. Spyware is spyware, no matter how popular it is.

Before it’s closed down…

Acquisition is a GREAT sharing app for OS X. The latest revision is super fast when hooking up to servers and I has pretty reliable connections.

It has a tiny bit of nag-ware (a request to buy that pops up every 45 minutes) but it doesn’t stop your current downloads or anything. Just click the “later” button and carry on.

So, SNenc, you’re posting something that you know the mods will frown on, and justifying it by posting it before the thread is closed? It should be very obvious that that’s not a wise idea. I very strongly recommend that you immediately e-mail the moderators and/or administrators to apologize.

We don’t allow discussions about file-sharing on this board due to copyright issues.

This is closed.

SNenc: What the Hell were you thinking? You know that the topic is off-limits and you answered anyway? We will be discussing your posting priviliges.
