    This isn't very helpful, but both Azureus and Limewire work fine for me. I would suggest the problem actually lies with your specific machine, as opposed to the overall software and hardware platform.

    Don't know what you can do about that though.

    BitTorrent (Azureus) doesn't work like "traditional" P2P. You have to go to a torrent tracker site and find torrents for what you want. Ummm... I've never used the built-in search in Azureus nor would I expect it to return any relevant (or illegal ;)) results.

    For the rest, Acquisition (not free) is the best P2P app I've used to date, but those old networks (FastTrack, Gnutella, eDonkey, etc.) just aren't any good IMHO. You might want to give Xtorrent a try, made by the same developer.

    Server problems. They will be back soon. Stories about CRIA are just false. Toothless dogs can't bite. ;)

    You do know about torrents, don't you? No? ok. Download transmission and set it as default program for opening .torrent files. Well, that it. Choose your favorite torrent tracker (TPB or BTJunkie or mininova) and search for what you want there. When you find it, download the torrent file, transmission will automatically open downloading the file. The END.

    Same. Both Azureus and Limewire work perfect for me.

    They will be back up soon. Nothing happened to them. They are just updating their entire server line.

    Again, I don't know who your source is, but Demonoid will indeed be back very soon. Just wait patiently.

    That's because Poisoned is PPC and hasn't been updated in a while. There was a Universal version somewhere (which worked) but the link no longer works.

    Try looking for the torrent files on the internet maybe?

    Java problems? I don't know but try opening the JAR file in the application package.

    I use Transmission. No problems. Not quite as speedy as uTorrent on the PC, but I've got no complaints. :D
