>>51455923
>still using utorrent

>>
>>51455923
nigga u old
>>
Napster when it first came out. WinMX after that. Then Slsk.
>>
>>51455923
do u even soulseek
>>
buying pirate CDs
stealing physical CDs
Deluge
>>
>utorrent
holy shit can you bring me one of those velociraptors while you're in the past
>>
>>51455966
is utorrent really that bad or is that just /g/ bullshit?
i use qbittorrent but just curious because i've heard some outlandish things about them apparently selling people's info to the MPAA or some shit like that
>>
>p2p

enjoy prison
>>
oh man, I remember using BearShare

I downloaded so much Porn marked as some movie I wanted
>>
>not just using soulseek
>>
>>51455923
Transmission & slsk
>>
>>51456058
it's just bloated with ads and shit. there are so many superior clients.
>>
It's always just been utorrent and more recently soulseek. Never dealt with any limewire bullshit.
>>
>>51456058
it's not free software, and they don't even make the source code available. The company is suspect as fuck, too.
>>
I used to use a lot of DC++ and eMule early to mid-2000's after I've been primarily using Soulseek and uTorrent which I changed to Deluge few years ago.
>>
>>51456155

whats better than mutorrent?
>>
>>51456155
not him but I only download torrents using utorrent maybe once or twice a month so I don't mind the ads
what else is wrong with it?
>>
>>51455923
vuze and Rutracker
>>
>>51456196
Deluge or qBittorrent
>>
>>51456177
anyways, there are other clients. be on the safe side and don't use software that is pretty much designed so they can hide stuff
>>
2003 - bittorent official client
2004 - utorrent
2012 - deluge

I swear to god, OP, if that's your actual history, you should give up and just stick to /mu/ share threads.
>>
>>51456254
>just stick to /mu/ share threads
the sad thing is there are probably people who actually do that
>>
as a kid - Bearshare
as a teen - Forums with 1-click-hoster links and fxp
right now - rutracker or I just buy the music
>>
wtf I use utorrent all the time, I dont think Ive ever seen an ad
>>51456177
suspect in what way? what are people afraid of, specifically?
>>
>>51456276
I did that before I started using rutracker.
Works alright imo
>>
>>51456077
>living anywhere but the U.S.

lel what's it like living in a shitty country faggot that'll rape you because you downloaded some $10 music from literal millionaires and billionaires
>>
>>51456196
I use qbittorrent. much cleaner interface, less resource intensive, more lightweight in general
>>
i like deluge.
>>
>>51455923
isnt Soulseek basically just a modern Napster?
>>
Limewire
MP3 direct download sites like MusicBee, MP3Rocket etc.
TPB with uTorrent

Nowadays I use /mu/ archive since it's direct dl or I use Rutracker with Deluge if it isn't on there.


>>51456276
What exactly is wrong with that? I'd say there is much less circlejerking and /mu/core posted in sharethreads than in "GOAT albums thread" or threads of the like.
>>
>>51456491
>What exactly is wrong with that?
sharethreads and the /mu/ archives cover a tiny as fuck range in comparison to slsk/rutracker/what.cd
>>
>>51456301
https://torrentfreak.com/bittorrent-and-mpaa-join-forces/
they also developed a obvious insecure "encrypted" chat client, no source code obviously and certainly not free software, called bleep. it used to be shilled like hell on /g/
>>
>>51456738
But many of the posters in the sharethreads get their albums from those places. That's the point of sharethreads, is to share music that isn't usually posted on /mu/ that some posters enjoy and would like to discuss or see discussion on it in the future.
>>
2005-2010 - uTorrent
2010-2014 - Transmission with what.cd
Intermitten use of Slsk when I want something but don't want to have my What ratio take a hit
>>
>>51455923
i remember using napster,kazaa and limewire. none of the others though
>>
napster
kazaa
tpb
rutracker
w.cd

Morpheus > >Kazaa / WinMX > Soulseek

>But many of the posters in the sharethreads get their albums from those places
sorta proving my point
>That's the point of sharethreads, is to share music that isn't usually posted on /mu/ that some posters enjoy and would like to discuss or see discussion on it in the future.
i understand that, I just think it's a bad idea to rely on sharethreads/the archive
>>
>>51457581
clients for trackers
deluge/transmission
>>
>>51456951
how do you get invited to what.cd?
>>
I had Grokster for a while
>>
>>51457890
You don't, you take the interview like any sane person would.

What.cd a shit though, unless you absolutely MUST have everything available in every format.
>>
>>51457937
what's shit about it?
hardmode: don't mention ratio
>>
>>51458196
>hardmode: don't mention ratio
It's a valid complaint though, the ratio system means well but in practice it's downright toxic. Just look at all the people downloading staff picks, not to mention the people downloading all the shit they won't ever listen to during the freeleech just to keep up a decent buffer ratio.

I think the whole seedbox situation is worse than that, as in you have people paying to rent seedboxes just to boost their ratio which is fucked IMO
