I don't want to open a can or ethical worms, so let's try to saty away from all that. From a simple security/stability pont of view, are file sharing programs like limewire safe? We've all heard the dark rumors of them being an open window through which the black-masked elements can enter our systems at will and steal whatever they want. I've even been told that you can't really remove these programs from your system by sending them to the trash, i.e., they're going to be on there for good. Is this true? I used limewire on my old iMac (mainly to download MP3's of songs I owned on my multitude of albums and 45's, so I believe I have that right). I have refrained from loading onto my new PowerMac "just in case." What's the word on the street on these things?
