is it safe to download limewire? or will it mess up my mac?
im pretty new to computers so...yea
No problems with Limewire although I rarely use it. Ever since the iTunes store went up I haven't used p2p for music.
No, it's fine. All viruses and spyware that can be gotten via Limewire (and trust me, there are many) do not affect Macs. However, be careful about P2P talk 'round these parts, mods really discourage this kind of chat...
don't use limewire...it gives you quality worse than youtube and is 90% porn anyway
Limewire is a bad program for Mac anyway. It won't give you a virus or anything, but it's generally a slow program and tends to crash. (at least for me)
I am pretty sure limewire was made on a mac for macs.
You can talk about which limewire apps work and which have problems.
It is the talk of content and where to get it that gets the threads closed.
Don't bother with Limewire. Otherwise, it shouldn't mess up your Mac as most of the viruses are intended for Windows.
frostwire seems to be a good alternative.
Also, remember that just because there aren't any viruses on your Mac, if you're stupid enough and d/l absolutely anything thinking it's everything you will get hacked and bye bye computer.
