LimeWire Basic
A fast P2P and torrent client

LimeWire is a fast peer-to-peer file sharing application and torrent client.

The program is far easier to use than many of the competition. Enter a search term; choose the file you need; LimeWire downloads it, generally very quickly - performance here is excellent - and plays the file when you're done.

LimeWire will prompt you during the download if it can't find a licence, a reminder not to infringe copyright. Although if you're determined, a click will clear the alert and you won't see it again, so the program isn't going to get in your way.

P2P doesn't have to be just about downloading pirated copies of the latest DVDs, though. LimeWire includes a Friends feature that makes it straightforward to set up your own custom file sharing network with friends, family or colleagues. Log in with your Gmail, LiveJournal or Jabber account and you can then use it to exchange family photos, work documents, home videos or any other files that are too large or confidential to email.

LimeWire is also available in a PRO version, that adds optimised search results, improved performance, and an integrated AVG antivirus engine to detect and block any malware you might download. Prices start at $21.95 for a six month subscription, and you can find out more at the LimeWire site.
 

Verdict:

File sharing doesn't get much easier than this - and LimeWire is fast, too

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 (v11.0.6)

Free Full Commercial Software

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 is a compact, simple, but surprisingly feature-packed disc burning suite.

The program makes it easy to create simple data discs and audio CDs, for instance: just drag and drop your files onto the list area and you'll be burning the finished disc in a couple of clicks.

That's just the start, though. Burning Studio 2013 can also create data discs with customised, interactive multi-page menus, perfect if you'd like a more professional way to share and present the disc contents.

A built-in backup tool allows you to create backups which may be encrypted, compressed, and span several CDs, DVDs and Blu-rays.

And there are modules to create VCD or SVCD video projects; burn video DVDs or Blu-ray discs from prepared folders; create, browse or burn disc images (ISO, CUE/ BIN and Ashdisc formats are supported); copy discs, erase them, design and print disc covers, labels and booklets, and more.

The focus throughout is on ease of use, though, and so Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 remains very straightforward, whatever you're doing. Most disc projects are created via the same simple interface, and for the most part all you have to do is drag and drop the necessary files. But experts will find more advanced options are only a click away, and if you need to then you can set ISO and UDF version, enable Joliet, make a disc bootable and more.

Note the download here will take you to the Downloadcrew Software Store where you can download Burning Studio 2013.
