well, I prefer newsgroups b/c I can get a better d/l speed. My free news server [earthlink] I can consistently get over 600Kb, and most importantly I don't depend on other people......just my news server.

Because newsgroups and IRC don't fucken (yes, I mean that) lie about what the file is. Tired of downloading complete bullshit which isn't what is posted

KaZaa is only good for either media (music, movies). Binaries are not really distributed properly on KaZaa, unless you change the settings to recognize multi-part RARs, which both the sharer and the downloader must do. Too much hassle, if you ask me.

Kazaa can be good for "older shit", usualy IRC and Newsgroups mostly only deal with fairly recent stuff. Although, if you have a lot of gigs to share you can find lots of "old" and new stuff on DC++.

As a rule of thumb on kazaa, the more users a file has the more reliable it is, and there are a few sites out there now that post "kazaa verifieds" (usually based on file size).
