I just heard about this from a friend....i was wondering if anybody has any experience with it.....does it compare to Napster? Any input is appreciated....I'm goinf through Napster withdrawal
I've used it, and I think it's decent. The problem with BearShare is that it uses the Gnutella network, and that network is famously non-scalable. The more crowded it gets, the more traffic there is. The more traffic, the slower your connection. And if you're on dialup, forget it. The connection will be so overloaded w/ search requests, you'll never return results.
