Gnutella is still alive and well, and you'd be surprised at how many people still use limewire. It has just become the easy go to download app. Mind you, the same people that used it are mostly the same people who don't know much about computers and are likely to get hit with spyware from free smileys.

Torrents are awesome, but it's always nice that there are alternatives kicking around. Not ideal alternatives, but better than nothing

Shutting down Limewire for piracy is like busting Willie Nelson, again, for pot possesion. Years too late and no one cares.

Trust me, they are out there. I see it day in and day out at work. Keeps me busy and in business cleaning up all the crap they collect with it. A lot of people see free music and free movies, and ignore the consequences, legal or otherwise.

Haven't used limewire for 5-6 years, just utorrent although it does have an integrated torrent client.
