    Its Limewire Pro v 4.7

    I wouldn't suggest you to install the latest versions as they come bundled with some toolbars & others
    I am downloading 2 movies per day using it (Of Course its DivX/XviD)

    best is to use rapidshare..u can completely utilise ur banwidth ...torrents..n ..p2p depends upon seeders and peers which changes over a period and ur speed increases or decreases accordingly...

    Look up... up in da sky... see me yet? Nah... Use
    u cant rapidshare multiple files for free... also there is a download limit

    Limewire's good. Provided the person on the other side is open & has good bw...

    I say go for torrents... use the free, light µTorrent

    It's similar to limewire, but i think in the long run, torrent sharing is better, and utilizes more bw... Just my POV...

    All of them are not sites. Limewire and Morpheus are clients for file-sharing and connect to the Gnutella and Gnutella2 networks. Torrent is a file which when used with a torrent client, downloads/uploades files from/to the internet. RapidShare is, as you mentioned, a site that allows free hosting of any file.

    Now, the best and fastest method of downloading files from the internet is torrents. Search for a torrent file on sites such as Torrentspy.com, The Pirate Bay or Torrent Finder and download the one with the best health. Then use some torrent client to download the files associated with the torrent you downloaded. µTorrent is a good, light and free client.

    The next option is P2P file-sharing. It is not very reliable, tends to be slower and has a very high percentage of malicious files. However, this is the best if you are on a limited or dial-up connection. Simply download some torrent client such as Limewire, Morpheus, Frostwire, or the one I preferred when I used Windows - Bearshare Pro; search for the file you want and download the one closest to the top of the list. Look out for viruses though. As a rule of thumb, avoid any file which is smaller than two megabytes. And if you have downloaded a movie, first play it once when you are alone (with the volume muted) and see that it does not contain porn before playing it in company. Obviously, this only applies if you did not intend to download pornographic content, which I hope you don't. :)

    RapidShare and other such files are a PITA if you do not have premium access to them and want to download large files. Stay far away from the 'Free' button.

    Hope that helped! :)
    If you have any specific problems, feel free to ask them. However, don't post links to anything illegal.
