- Interface looks OK.
- Not how I hoped it was
- Thought connecting to other computers would be easier
This was a pretty good program for finding rare files, but now I can find more stuff through BitTorrent and file hosting sites.
The main problem with this is that you can only download a file from one peer. So you can't get faster speeds if more people have the same file. Also, if the person leaves mid-download, you'll never be able to finish it unless you're both on at the same time again.
Good for finding rare & hard-to-find files.
Too Cliquish.. You have to have a MINIMUM of 100 gigs of shared files on some portals.. I have 8 gigs of QUALITY files.. but because I don't keep JUNK on my hard drive to inflate my stats, I cannot get into a lot of portals. TOO MANY RULES!!!
This program is supposed to be hassle free and maybe the software is hassle free but the hubs are pitiful. I only found 2 hubs that remotely interested me and upon entering the hubs i was bombarded by about 50 strict rules which would end up getting me kicked or banned! I think breathing was against one rule. Some people must lead very little sad lives in the real world and when they get some authority on the net and they go on a sad little virtual power trip. Even when i was connected to this hub i found sweet FA i wanted. SOULSEEK is VASTLY superior and most of all, truly hassle free.

yes, the program is hassle free, and so are the hubs. You base your comments on hubs that you go in, but you don't realize that there are thousands of hubs you can enter. Some have minimum restrictions, which I am sorry, you probably didn't meet. Some have rules, but hey, doesn't everything have rules. Or you acting like a baby just cuz you can? I believe you are the one leading a sad life, if you have to come on here and dis DC. I have used it for 4 years without an issue, but I guess you have to understand it, before you can actually use it. DC is a great program if you take the time to learn how to use it. As per Soulseek, never used it...but I'm not going to dis it. That's what we adults do!! ps- i believe that you are the one on the little virtual power trip. buh-bye, glad to see ppl like you out of DC
i like everything
Simply your webpages a little
no adware or spyware, but has ad banner. best to use it as an alternative file sharing program, not your primary file sharing program
Unlike Kazaa, you don't end up with tons of fake files. What u download is what u get. Since using I've had only 1 fake file. compare that with kazaa!
I think the good thing about this program is it hasn't got any spyware like Kazaa and other sharing program (I'm not so sure though)~ the bad thing is you cannot find rare stuff like old movies or b-side single songs or songs of another language~ also, you must have 10GB or more to be able to share~ and once the person is offline you'll not be able to download the file from another person like you can in Kazaa~ this program is not international so you only can share the files with the local users, which makes it harder to find rare files~ But I still recommend this program because I'm sick of spyware~ I recommend that you first download 20GB from Kazaa and then uninstall it and install direct connect~ so you'll not need to share your whole hardware~
