i don't blame you.

i recently started using something called winmx.  it has things about it i like. however, the userbase doesn't seem to be high enough for searches to return results for the types of music i listen to.  that could change though.

morpheus is kazaa is morpheus.

they both connect to the same network.  they both use the same p2p engine.  they both have a nearly identical interface.  they just have different names.

fwiw, i still prefer kazaa over the rest that are available.  when installing it you can choose to not install the spyware pieces.  just make sure you read the text descriptions for each of the checkboxes in the install process *very* carefully.
