    For one -nobody pays for the upgraded "pro" or "better" version of FREE VERSIONS of software (p2p or w/e)
    becuase if it was worth one penny more, it would be in a box sealed with plastic and have a little yellow sticker
    on it that says "best buy" or "compusa"
    a typical p2p leech,no one pays ?if p2p were dead and buried people would not have to pay such high prices as the developers would get more income,your statement of no one pays is totally innacurate as honest people do pay just as p2p users should, would all the leeches who acquire their programs and stuff mind if part of their yearly income was reduced because people were stealing part of their wages,i think they definitely would mind, if you were a fisherman and part of your catch was stolen from your boat daily would you mind, i think you would.its honest folk who pay for their programs cds and stuff who pay for leeches as it puts up prices to help cover this huge loss that scroungers create.

    Well many here claim not to be warez leeches or "mis-users" of p2p software, but there
    not exactly using "said" software for downloading demo's and sharing pictures of each

    Bit Torrent in a P2P app which has widely been accepted as the first channel for posting GNU/Linux distros, even before FTP sites are updated with the latest ISO's. This is a legal use of the program, and not an illegal use of the technology.
    Its extremely popular amongst the GNU community for sharing, saving bandwidth costs and making access easy for those seeking the latest distros.

    "Torrents" are widely used for the illegal distribution of pirated software and music/movie&#39;s/video&#39;s ect...
    the minisicule amount of linux "iso&#39;s" and gnu community use hardly justifies the popularity of bit torrent and other p2p type file sharing programs out there. the popularity is in the illegal use of said programs. not because somebody wants the latest distro of "knoppix" for example. most popular activity involving the distribution of linux iso&#39;s are generaly available thru "http" mirrors at many of the larger universitys across our country.

    if you like illegal activities thats fine but dont expect honest folk to have it shovelled into them thay are NOT interested, being a leeching troll is fine just go find a site that appreciates that kind of thing as this one doesnt, this thread is gone off topic now so no more replies will be posted on the subject

    You obviously are not a user of GNU Software.
    The statement was to show that there is indeed legal usage of bit torrent technology. Not to state that the only use of torrents is such.
    There is no a miniscule amount of GNu/Linux ISO&#39;s either. There are several hundreds distros available, not counting the *BSD Camp, embedded market either.
    Yes, it was common to ftp your ISO before, but now, most, such as Mandrake for example, and releasing on Torrents first, before loading to ftp.


    As stated, this is going off topic.
