I dont know about the rest of you but I really dislike this new Morpheus setup. It seems to be less "user friendly" takes three times as long to configure and requires you to do everything the hard way.
What does everyone else think?
It let me find and dl what I wanted New Alanis CD. I like it well enough so far.

the problem is they had to scramble, and just whipped out an older gnutella client. I imagine they will improve that a lot though, most importantly, it needs a bit rate search.
I'm playing with WinMX right now, seems a'ight. If bloody kaaza would stay connected, but it won't.
See, Morpheus had intended all along to merge the fast network with gnut, really opening up the whole thing. Only streamcast didn't realize that fast really isn't totally decentralized like gnut is, and that apparently, the new owners of kaaza seem to have some sort of hidden agenda that makes them not like that idea.

So far I dislike the new format too. After clicking for some things to download, my queues disappear to another tab if its unable to download. I personally liked the old style, where it would have the whole list in front of you, and give a list of status of everything. But like LPMiller said, it'll get better. I just won't rely it on heavily until it does so.
On my wish list is being able to choose diff types of media like you used to. Images, videos, songs - there's no way to distinguish right now, unless I missed something. Still, for the hack-job they had to put out, it's ok.

As far as I can tell the only way to pick the media is to filter out all the other types of media. Just go into the filter preferences and enter in the formats you dont want. When you are done, you have to go back and delete the ones you added.
