BitTorrent. Yes or No?
July 8, 2007 11:33am CST
I myself are a daily user of bittorrent. (Utorrent client) I download music, games and other stuff, even legal torrents. Here in the Netherlands it is legal to download, but not to upload things like software and music. Do you use bittorrent, and what client do you use?

I have to confess a terrible thing: I never was able to understand how bit torrent works. I downloaded the program and tried to configure it, but I suffered from my ignorance about the basic philophy of the torrent streaming. Result: I forget about it, and suscribed to a peer-to-peer network, but I only use it to download that kind of music that the vendors don't have available because they concentrate in the more commercial pieces. A private person, a collector, owns pieces that can't be found anywhere else. These I'm searching for and am very grateful to the persons that allow me to download them directly from their computers and as they share the same interests, they are something like a friend. So the essential philosophy of the peer-to-peer is preserved: you always can lend a book, a CD, etc. to a friend. But I don't do it very often!
