I'd disagree with that. Can't comment further.
That in itself tells a thousand words

It might have been release a week before, I dont check usenet as regularly as I should.

Where else can you download it from though? IRC is hard to use and you usually have to trade. Bittorrent it slowwww.

Usenet downloads at a solid 500kb/s for me....

Usenet is the prequel of the internet. It was created for UNIX firstly.
Usenet is absolutely wicked ! And it is not so overrunned with kids and lamers.
And it uses your full bandwidth.

Usenet is a distributed Internet discussion system.

I may be wrong (please correct me if so) but I think you use newsgroup readers like Agent Forte etc...

Torrents are great yeah. But over usenet, you can download a file with your full internet speed. A torrent download takes some days.
But bittorrent roxx !

Blueyonder has a 2 day retention.....but i sometimes pay £8 for a month of 50days retention. Bittorent is poor, only recent and popular files have a lot of seeds.

Usenet ftw imo

Unison on the Mac, NewsCoaster on the Amiga or Thunderbird for most operating systems. Of the three, I prefer NewsCoaster, but that might be because I only ever really connected to usenet on the Amiga. My current ISP (Pipex) doesn't offer any news service at all unless you're willing to pay for it.
