Study: LimeWire remains top P2P software; uTorrent fast-rising No. 2

LimeWire, a grizzled veteran of the peer-to-peer (P2P) file-sharing scene, remains the most popular software for exchanging music, video and software — much of it pirated — through the Internet, according to a study released Wednesday.LimeWire was used on 17.8% of PCs in September last year, according to the latest Digital Media Desktop Report. Since about half of surveyed PCs have at least one peer-to-peer sharing application installed, that gives LimeWire a 36.4% share — more than three times the 11.3% share of the next-most-popular client, µTorrent.
