allthough limewire is shutdown,the Gnutella network still works.
on Windows for example, i run limewire turbo, and i still can download stuff, but the connection isn't at his full speed anymore like it used to.
Limewire, or any other P2P-program that uses the Gnutella network are not working anymore the way it should be.
the best way to download movies, games, mp3 etc. is still Usenet and bittorrent.
