    This is for BT only. That means it's competing against utorrent and qtorrent, right?

    Thanxxx, but no thanxxx.

    Version 5 SUCKS!!! and version 4 is slowly dying

    Frostwire is owned by the same people as Limewire. I thought this "Frostwire" was not working also. It wasn't for me a few weeks ago.
    Anyone have any other sites that are good to get music from like the old Limewire?

    Looks like Frostwire is still alive, I thought with the demise of Limewire it was dead...but I guess not
