Like most of the Gnutella clients these days,
Limewire lacks a very large amount of basic
features. To cover up these holes they choose to
implement a host of "flashy" features that, without
a solid platform, become no more then buzzwards.
Upload throttling? Barely, lowest setting on DSL
half the bandwidth available to the connection and
thats without including network overheard!
Swarming downloads, multiple searches, quality
control, queues.. It doesn't matter without the
freedom to modify the client to your connection
your either going to end up starved of bandwidth
or unsuccessful in your searches. We should all
share, but its not worth it if you can't benefit
yourself. Check out GTK-Gnutella, haven't gone
back since.. supports bandwidth shaping, swarming
downloads, queues, etc, etc..
Re: You should be proud of this
Bah. You would do well to follow your own advice. An April
Fool's joke, such as your first message is one thing, but
your holier-then-thou attitude and hypocritical evaluations
have no place.
