What is Usenet?
Is it something like BitTorrent?
I heard that it is faster and much better than BitTorrent, is this true?
A while ago MakeUseOf published an easy-to-follow guide that compares biggest file sharing networks such us Usenet, BitTorrent and several others. Check it out.
The Guide to Biggest File Sharing Networks: Pros & Cons
Those guides are the best. Really informative and all around great guides.
Thanks Richard! :-)
Here is the best definition you will find: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Usenet
It is basically 80's style internet, very basic and rough. Your download speed will be similar to a regular web download.
Be very careful with this side of the web, there are thing hidden there that you probably do not want see. If you are in the US, be careful because alot of USENET is monitored, it is where alot of internet crime happens.
