    This may well be the worst day of my life. :'(

    I always feared this day would come. Yes, I download a lot of songs off iTunes, but I'm not going to lie I download about 70% of my music through limewire. Thoughts or advice to get me though these trying times? :'(

    But if LW get's shut down, and they are based off of the same system, won't FW seize to return any search results?

    I'm not an expert but I thought they were on different servers? Nonetheless, Frostwire has been yielding results just fine. Hope it stays that way.

    Limewire is too, for now. It's only a matter of days/hours before it get's shut down. I think I'll go join the thread regarding that 14 year old and his girlfriend. :(

    Fine with them, they just discovered bit torrent like the rest of the internet. Limewire? really? Hell, Napster for Mac (Macster) was better than Limewire.

    Torrents and newsgroups replaced limewire style file sharing years ago. Not to be snobby (though I totally know this will sound snobby), but I'm surprised people still use(d) limewire.

    Limewire is so much easier than torrenting. Plus, I NEVER download full albums, only the songs I want. My goal is to be able to push play and never want to hit next/skip.

    wow. interesting.

    used to be back in the day, you couldn't even just write the word "torrent" or the words "file share" on this site w/o getting b& and the thread deleted.

    anyway, limewire? Seriously?

    Time to move on to torrents.

    I would much rather use torrents then have that TERRIBLE application polluting my computer.

    Ditto. Although I've moved onto NZB's now. Costs a little but the speeds are crazy.

    I had either Limewire or Kazaa on an old PC and it toasted it with assorted maladies, including virii.

    Better off dead.

    It's dead, move on and find another way to steal your music.

    Nahh, I think I'll keep using it until it's completely shut down. I have a few days left. Oh but thanks, though.

    I'm glad limewire is dead. Maybe people will start to buy their music now

    So you don'y have any pirated media on your computer? Not a show or music video or a song or a movie? That's fairly hard to believe.
