Hi Guys, What do you think which one is better, Torrents or normal P2Ps???Pls dont' tell me that torrents are also P2Ps, i know that :) that's why used the word "normal"...i hope u make out the difference.Also, do give reasons to justify whatever u say to make your point valid... :)

i think it depends upon where you manage to find a file which you want. its not like eveyrthing is available on these two. :) plus i think most people on bandwidth restricted packages would prefer to use p2p applications which has leaner requirement of uploading data.

i have slowly changed from kazaalite to edonkey and finally torrents . i dont know . when i did use kazaa..i hated torrents with all my guts . said it was a passing fad but kazaa was here to stay . after kazaa died i tried edonkey but it sucks . dunno why . it just did . kazaa was ok but i had download a lot of fake files and i was just fed up . the mpaa and riaa won in this case . now torrents ...when i did get to it it was only due to an application called bitcomet that was referred to by a friend . i tried it . and i liked it . the best part is there are dedicated sites which offer torrents both legal and illegal but the best part of them all is the genuinety of teh downloads . check the forum . u know if its valid or not . its as simple as that . if its true u see all the praises or if its fake u se all teh cuss words ;)the best part is i used to download and run away while i was in kazaa...but in torrents i stay atlest till i do a 1:1 ratio . but then again i am also part of a desi movie release group so maybe the seeding part is few among many .

Because if everyone downloads and runs away how is this then gonna help the community. Torrents help in inculcating the habit of giving as well
