Now that the courts have successfully closed down the downloading capabilities of Limewire, is anyone really going to miss it? I've known a lot of people who have used it, only to find they've ended up with viruses all over the place. I haven't used limewire for years because of this. And it seems that any computer that has it installed is going to have an update for LW to permanently disable the downloading and search features to make it only a Media Player. So to Limewire, Goodbye and Good riddance.

Wasn't Limewire a torrent?

Technically, no it wasn't. It wasn't till later on that it started to support torrents. Even then I still refused to use it.

Geenome is right.
Lime wire was not based on torrenting.
It was P2P.

I would like to remind users to not talk about torrenting as it violates the TOS of this site....Thanks... Just keep it to a minimum

Im talking about it in a legal sence. Actually the post above does make it sound like im a pirate junkie.
I pay for all my software and i respect they work hard to develop and publish software.
I also only use Utorrent for Linux. I am a linux junkie though :P. I LOVE linux

I don't know why talking about torrenting violates the site TOS, as there is a LOT of things to legally download via torrenting. Linux Distros being one of them.

Does it really matter?

Shutting down one program is not going to stop piraters from using things such as Frostwire, Ares, Torrents, etc.

But it is a step in the right direction.

Good point.
Anti Piracy should be more serous but it is not.

Haven't used it in years, not gonna miss it.

I don't care honestly. It should of been done years ago, the legal system is slow.

No, I never used Limewire, all I heard about that is people getting viruses from there all the time.

I know a lot of people whow ill miss it but I think this is due to the fact that most people don't really under stand torrents. Alot of my friends use a conversion and download service called Zamzar
