    Post Napster subscription

    You guys hear about napsters offer to pay the record companies $1B over 5 years? They reckon they are going to make it up through their subscriptions when they shut down their free service. How many of you use napster and would still use it if it was $5 a month?

    Thumbs up

    I would use AudioGnome, Gnutella, CuteMX, or Freenet. Many options. They can't take it all down

    Napster thinks that 3.3 million people are willing to pay $5 per month for the next 5 years? And that's just to pay off the extortion by the record companies.

    Cool

    I wouldn't be against paying for Napster if it was the only service. However, since there are a bunch of other ways to get MP3s I don't see the point of paying...

    I forgot to mention that iMesh is still up and running. I have downloaded quite a few movies with iMesh and Gnucleus (a very good Gnutella client).

    This one lets you choose out of all songs previously avaliable. Then when the song becomes avaliable it downloads the song. Works great with a high speed/LAN connection.
