Not sure what an edumucation is???

But Limewire downloading is free, you can download:

-Audio (songs, speeches, comedy, etc)
-Video (movies, music videos, etc)
-Images (pictures, posters, etc)
-Programs (games, computer programs, etc)
-Documents (speeches, bills, etc)

limewire is pretty much the best possible way to get individual songs but for whole albums and porn you're better off with bitorrent.

I recommend it. it doesn't screw up your comp at all that I've noticed.

You just better watch out that you don't download any spyware. Sometimes it's attached to files that you download off of p2p sites. If you a have good anti-spyware program then you should be ok.

LimeWire is a great program so far that I've noticed. You can download just about any song imaginable.

I like Shareaza better, and I used to like Morpheus. Limewire just always seemed slow and I didn't get a lot of results for what I was looking for, but to be fair, they may have updated it, it's been a while since I used it.

Also, I'm a big fan of D++ but you have to know what hubs to join.

I've never gotten bit torrents to work for myself, but I'm probably using them wrong. Seems like everytime I d/l one, I click it and it just links me to the file in Shareaza or something and tries to download.
