With U.S. District Judge having issued an order to P2P service LimeWire to cease its operations, many ex-LimeWire users are now searching for a viable alternative.
Although LimeWire claims it is going to come back as a subscription-based “ecosystem” providing better access to their whole music library, it’s still unlikely to have much appeal for its former users. Therefore, those may consider it convenient to get an overview of the most popular P2P application’s alternatives available.
The most popular way of file-sharing, BitTorrent cuts files down into smaller pieces to enable thousands of users to share the same file simultaneously. The option is very useful for sharing large files. Unlike other file-transfer protocols, this one is designed to work best with the number of users interested in a specific file. BitTorrent is able to support around a 1,000 times as many downloads as HTTP protocol.
This is one of the oldest and perhaps safest computer networks that are still used. Usenet was first created over thirty years ago by a couple of Duke University graduates, who wanted the program to post messages as a public bulletin board system. Consumers download files from Newsgroups, which sometimes demand a nominal monthly fee. Its main advantage is the offer of faster download speeds and, at the same time, a greater level of safety and security.
KaZaA Lite is actually a hacked version of the KaZaA Media Desktop. The latter was originally created by users discontented with the network’s applications with secretly embedded spyware and adware. The Lite version also provides access to the FastTrack network, like the original Kazaa Media Desktop. However, it doesn’t require any installation of the third-party software.
That is a file-sharing application, which is largely based on the eDonkey2000 network. However, eMule offers rather more features than the original eDonkey applications. eMule also includes an entirely new server less network, which is, in its turn, based on Kademlia. eMule application is also open source, while being under the restrictions of the GPL License. This client is one of the biggest and most reliable peer-to-peer file-sharing applications throughout the globe.

|ANYTHING BUT KaZaA HAD YEARS AGO MAN IT WAS BAD|
|I kind of miss Ares Ultra..|
|Although, to me the best replacement for LIMEWIRE would have to be Utorrent and Torrent Pond together, by just downloading the metafiles for music, as it relates to individual tracks, or whole albums.|
