I've used both for three years or more. Neither have spyware (make sure you use Kazaa LITE). Both have their strengths and weaknesses, but if you can't find what you want through them, you might as well go with legit pay sites. I still think ITunes charges waaay too much per song, since I can pay just a bit more and have the whole CD factory burned with artwork/liner notes, cheaper if I buy a used CD).
I've just upgraded to XP and have been reading about Kazaa lite in the forum. I had it installed on my old computer for years and never really had any problems. Could someone please suggest the best music program to download? I tried BearShare and got some extras which I didn't want, uninstalled that one. Any ideas? There are so many Kazaa download sites, can I trust any of them? Thanks.
