Why would anyone hate torrents? Level One (first ep.) is 25% underway in 8 minutes. Download uTorrent, follow one of the many tutorials if you don't know how to set up the ports etc., and google for <whatever> +torrent.
It's hard to see how anything could be better than torrent - downloading at 256KBps, it uses 1-3% of the CPU time.
There is no need for torrent tutorials, it's easy to catch. I don't have a time lock of 60-100 minutes, my IP is dynamic.
Torrent are good for fast spreading, nothing more. The most torrents dies after 2-3 month, while you can find stuff in emule which it's older than 2 years. Especially annoying is this long seeding to reach a specific ratio.
I prefer Webhoster: They are available 24/7, anonym (for now) and you don't need to register anywhere.
But anyway, everbody have preferences.
