    ARES P2P is the Best. Limewire and others are heavy consume lot of CPU make system slow. Also Limewire don't have facility to show video,it always execute external media player like Windows Media Player which is irritating. And all other are are torrent downloading software, I don't know how they count them in P2P software category. Ares is both P2P and Torrent downloading supporting software then also so light

    Vote for Ares. Its King of P2P and extraordinary software.
