Does anyone here have Limewire for Mac? I want to know if it will mess my comp up. thanks.
i've seen a huge number of problems with it on macs. i stay away from it. try Acquisition X as a replacement.
Yeah i've got limewire on my mac. It doesn't mess anything up as long as you know what you're doing with it . i.e. use your head when downloading songs, if the file size is under a meg, you know it probably isn't the song. Although that only applied under windows because of the viruses, so I should think you'd be alright. I'm using it without any problems anyway.
ok thanks. I'll try out the Acquisition X thing.
Acquisition is limewire with a skin on it.
Acquisition is limewire.
DO NOT GET LIMEWIRE. It will mess up your computer eventually. Acquisition is better for the safety of your computer.
won't consider software ask for $$$...
I wanted to post that so bad.
Even if your not.
get Acqlite its acquisition without the popups
Heh! That was precisely the link I wanted to post.
lol, anti-limewire basher,
Ok no limewire. And that pirate thing is very funny
I was not expecting that. I almost passed out laughing.
If you get aquisition, you are just paying for limewire. I have never had any issues with limewire on my ibook.
i've used lime wire for years and its never done a thing. every one must be downloading animal porn or somthing.
I just started using Frostwire. Same thing just on a non-US based Server.
i used to use limewire and i never had any problems on my powerbook. frostwire is good, too.
the only reason i don't use those anymore is cause i can get anything on oink and it's much faster/easier to grab whole albums...
and yes, i am a pirate. i suck.
www.frostwire.com used it since i got my mac, and switched from limewire to it on my Windows box to
I bought Acquisition when I first got my iMac, best file sharing app out there on any platform imo.
I like Acquisition because it transfers the files directly to iTunes. (no that its all that hard) so far no problems.
Man I want to get Aquisition X... Seems much better than LimeWire... even though it is basically the same thing
I use FrostWire. Same basic thing, with less viruses and most importantly, it just looks cooler
Edit: Damn, beaten
Ok here's the word from the top. Limewire IS fine if you know what you're doing. Check out here to make sure you set it up correctly, that's the biggest part out of the way.
Limewire is just the same as everything else mentioned here. With a little common sense and good advice you'll be fine.
Please check what limewire is and you will see it runs on Java based platform which essentially means anything including mac, windows, etc.
Not only that but it is a limewire free download officially.
First off, Frostwire is great...I remember using that back years ago after I realized I hated Limewire but before I figured out how to use the internet properly...
Also, Didn''t I read something a while back about Limewire finally getting the last nail in their coffin?
Yeah, I thought Limewire died?
