I heard a rumour that WinMX was being shut down, does anyone know if this is true? If so, what is the best music download program? I've heard of Kazaa, but also heard that there's a lot of viruses on it! Which program should I use? Thanks in advance to all replies!

I don't think p2p can ever be shut down, becuase nothing is centralised (like napster). The whole network relies on individuals running the program and as long as they do, then theres no stopping it.

Every p2p program will carry viruses and stuff, so theres no getting away from it. Generally the more popular the program (kazaa, morpheus), the more viruses there are!
