Honestly, i really didn't know anyone still used that virus riddled POS anymore....

P2P file-sharing enabler LimeWire finally lost its long-running battle against music-industry heavy hitters on Tuesday. "As of today, we are required to stop distribution and support of LimeWire’s P2P file-sharing service as a result of a court-ordered injunction," reads a statement by Lime Company CEO George Searle on the company's website.

"Naturally, we're disappointed with this turn of events," Searle continues. Naturally.

The injunction was handed down by the US District Court for the Southern District of New York. It permanently enjoins and restrains LimeWire from distributing its client software.

God I hate the thing. My bro used to install that sh!t back in the day when we only had one pc. I used to reinstall the whole system afterward.

Glad to see it gone.

It was the worst website ever in my opinion, I have seen scores of PC's folks owned where this software service was used and their PC's never functioned well.
