"No Adware, High Speed"

Recommend staying current with your PRO version is recommended. I run on RoadRunner Cable internet service, with 4 other systems online, and can average over 500KB/s total downloads.

I have no system wide side effects due to this P2P software like I have had with so many others. I run LimeWire Pro on multiple Windows XP (Home, Pro and x64) as well as Windows Server 2003.

"No Problems"

We've used this program for over a year (two adults and two teenagers) here, and it is very solid. Although I use it to share many different types of files, the others in the household mainly use it for music file sharing. It works very well for all purposes. I've watched the program evolve; it just keeps getting better and better.

The user interface is so well thought out that new users can generally use the program without even reading the instructions, although it's best to read it. In fact, the interface is far better than one tends to find with most Windows programs.

Speed wise, it is at least as fast, in my experience faster, than other P2P programs of its ilk. There are a few speed tricks one can employ once you get a feel for the program. It also plays well with iTunes and iPods.

Another plus is that if you use additional computing platforms, as I do, you can still use the same familiar program. As it is written with Java, it will also run on Linux, Solaris, Mac OS, or Mac OS X, in addition to the Windows platform. The is a huge benefit for me personally.

Did I mention that the price is right? It's very good value for the money, especially considering the constant updating.

"Seems fine"

I think this is a comparable Gnutella product. It has some things going for it, like the fact that it works on almost all platforms and it connects to gnutella blazingly fast. The core of the program are best of breed, although the JAVA GUI does leave somethings to be desired.

I can recommend this product. It might not have the best GUI, but it is almost always the program that has the newest features, best connectivity and allround best userexperience on Gnutella. Some will argue that Gnutella sucks, but if you want to use Gnutella, LimeWire will get you the fiels you want AT LEAST as well as any competitve products (Bearshare, Morpheus, Shareaza, etc.)
