"Has hidden wares added to it, even if you opt out you get it anyway."

April 25, 2005  |  By yarhil

 |  Version: eDonkey c

Pros

None to say.

Cons

To much trouble to use. Took to long to work with and the downloads did not even come close to being worth a mention. Has hidden items bundled with it, Norton picked out a file I think was called "outlaster" right at the begining of the software install. After I removed from my pc, Adaware found a number of files to be removed. Stay clear of this program if you can.

"This is WinMx used to be like"

April 19, 2005  |  By Tezcatlipoca

 |  Version: eDonkey c

Pros

It works. I'm downloading again - enough that I have to keep an eye on my bandwidth limit for my cable service. eDonkey delivers the results that WinMx used to before that software turned into an ugly battleground between "leeches" and the "MxMonitor police." There is less hassle... click on a download and you're in the queue .. as opposed to WinMx where you must switch immediately to the Transfer page, to ensure that you are in the queue and not timed out because the file is 'busy' with 50 others in the queue. The bottom line is determined in Megabytes. In the last year or more I have become tired not only of downloading almost nothing from WinMx but never finding myself even in queue. And when placing myself in queue I frequently discovered myself booted from queues by users with "Mx moni" in their nicks, although I was sharing over 400 files with 6 upload slots. eDonkey automatically rewards those who share and thus eliminates the nasty politics. eDonkey provides alerts warning of potential "fake" files. I ran eDonkey side by side with WinMx for 24 hours.... had my upload queue fully active on WinMx -- was getting no downloads and finally turned it off. In the same time, I downloaded dozens of Megabytes from eDonkey.

Cons

I am on cable. I noticed a warning on eDonkey for DSL users,(with a config tab for correcting). MS Anti-Spyware Beta returns multiple "threats" from eDonkey and its Overnet companion. I have chosen to ignore these for now. I recommended eDonkey to a friend, whose earlier version of Norton reported 3 Trojans while downloading from Download site. However, Spyware Doctor, Norton 2005 and Adaware scanned and reported no threats. The interface is simple but takes some getting used to. This is not a con but it takes a short time to discover what's likely to be downloadable and what's likely to turn into a hassle.
