I still don't have music stealing technology working for me. When I can apt-get an open source program that really works for this, I'll get into it...

Limewire? limeware.org has the open source version of this java gnutella client.

I've either already bought - on vinyl - virtually all of the music I've downloaded, or it's not available eg people's home remixes.

limewire...not so much

I use Limewire and I don't think it's all that great. I have cable Internet and whenever I use Limewire, it's kinda slow, plus it doesn't seem to have a lot of underground or independent music on it or entire albums. I also use Hotline, I don't know if that's open source, but a friend of mine got me the software off the Internet and I've found a bunch of full album download sites that support a wide variety of genres.

Re: limewire...not so much

I liked it enough to pay for. It was what I went to after Morpheus went spyware. I now use WinMX (which went from being the best Napster client to some problems to a good own network) but if that got sued out of existence, I'd go back.

It's gnutella, with all the advantages (as near impossible to close down as you can get) and disadvantages (not currently as popular as some of the commercial p2p networks) that implies.
