Which is better? Why?
I used to be neutral about this. Part of me still is. But with the shut down of MU, another part of me slightly favors torrents a bit more. With MU gone, all the MU links on the net are inoperative. However with torrents, if people seed, you can download. If a MU link is dead, the uploader, if he chooses to will have to reupload it or provide a new link. But with torrents, there is no link. You just re-seed/keep seeding. Do I use torrents more? Depends. Do I use file hosting sites more? Depends. But it doesn't depend on choice. It depends on some things:
1. If I find something with a file hosting site and not torrent, I will use the file hosting site.
2. If vice versa, torrents will be used.
3. If I find what I want on either, it depends which way will it done faster.
4. And of course it foes without saying but, if neither, I keep searching till I find it. Also youtube could be a good thing, but only temporary as the quality isn't always great (especially after you download it) & it's safe to say it won't be on youtube forever.
So as you can see, while I'm slightly towards torrents now thanks to MU's unfortunate fate, there's still a part of me that is neutral.
Which do you favor more? Why?
P.S. Please respect the opinions of others.
