    I prefer iTunes for MP3 player software and the iTunes Store for Media. (Although I still purchase CDs once in a while, at least until the Beatles are on there for good :) )

    Just tread carefully with what you're asking for, as well as in your responses guys. Should this discussion venture into piracy, the mods'll shut this thread down rather quickly.

    External HD, file sharing sites (drop.io) or your good ol' flash drive should do the job for that specific need. :)

    limewire and the like are legal. It is how one uses it that makes it illegal but, by and large, we all know that limewire is a conduit for music and video piracy. So, let me just add to the chorus : ITUNES as the alternative to limewire.

    one word: FROSTWIRE!!! just in time for Christmas! and the program's kind enough to hint you if the file you've downloaded is somehow infected... just choose Cancel and voila! you would have saved yourself the trouble of having to run a scan on your pc! truly yipee!
