    Same advantages found in the previous versions.


    Virtually the same cons/disadvantages found in previous versions.


    Please note that this review applies ONLY to version 5.5.8.
    I think the company that markets LimeWire has been deceptive and dishonest when they said that version 5.5.8 has an "Enhanced Media Player", not only is the built in media player virtually identical and just as plain and lacking as the previous version, but once again, the new version is yet another scheme to get people to download the version that just opens up more pop-up advertisments. I also havent noticed any performance or stability improvements. There is actually a very good chance that newer versions actually weigh more load lagging on your CPU and RAM, resulting in reduced PC performance, for the stupid, retarded kids that think the running LimeWire on MAC OS X is better, the same thing goes for the Mac OS X version as well. (dumb***ks...)
