Does anyone use limewire?
i notice that it has an option to directly connect to other users shared folders via IP dial in or something like that...does anyone know if this is safe? if we all put queen tracks in our shared folders then list our IPs we can swap music without needing third party things such as Bit Torrent!?

I'm not sure, but isn't Limewire a Gnutela client? If that is the case, I'd suggest Shareaza instead, as it is both a Gnutela and a Bit Torrent client.

As for the IP thing, in my case that would not work, as mine is a dynamic IP.
