LimeWire Pirate Edition Download - Windows, Linux, MAC - LimeWire Pro

LimeWire Pirate Edition is free, open source software based on the final beta version of the popular LimeWire Pro filesharing application.
After Lime Wire LLC stopped distributing its software in October 2010, an individual compiled from the latest Limewire beta PRO source code a modded LimeWire Version named Limewire Pirate Edition and released it FREE to the community to help keep the Gnutella network alive.

LimeWire Pirate Edition is available for Windows, MAC and Linux. It is based on the LimeWire 5.6 beta which was released online but then withdrawn when the RIAA won its case against the service at the end of October.

LimeWire Pirate Edition is pure P2P software; it does not depend on any servers operated by Lime Wire LLC or other companies. It does not include any adware or spyware, and it cannot be remotely monitored or shut down.

Changelog Limewire Pirate Edition:

- all dependencies on LimeWire LLC's servers have been removed,
- all remote settings have been disabled,
- the Ask toolbar has been unbundled,
- all features of LimeWire PRO have been activated for free

LimeWire Pirate Edition should work better than the last functioning version of LimeWire (5.5.10), and it should keep working for longer. There's no adware or spyware: the piratical monkeys are doing this for the benefit of the community.

Wow did not know that this was possible. A pirate version of limewire? I hope it will work as well as the old one.

Big Headlines in the internet these days, It's back, Resurrected By Secret Dev Team,....

The question is will it get regular updated, I mean improved?

To compile from source a binary with a few changes is not the big deal.

Lets see what future brings...

Wow! I learned today that the p2p client that made me open up to this much culture when I was young was now injunction and therefor dead. Still, I found out there was a pirate edition whom will fight to keep and promote file sharing. Then I thought to myself : What a nice thing to pirate!

There exist also LuckyWire (based on LimeWire PRO)

Any hope someone can post a source for the 4.18.8 Pro? Or maybe make a pirate version 4.18.8 ?

Version 5 sucks crap. It's missing too many features version 4 had. Version 5 is too dumbed down.

It'll be cool if there is a Mac version.
