I've heard it's great, but because I'm careful and a pussy I want to make sure it's legal and as good as people say it is. Has anyone ever used it?

If you download the downloads from a website, it's illegal.
If you download a program that makes you enter a username, and lets you download from other uses, it's legal.
EDIT: Sorry. It is the other way around.

Wouldn't it be the other way around? The username thing would be like Kazaa or something.

a) last number i saw as 35% of all internet traffic is on the bittorrent protocol.
b) bittorrent is legal, it's just a protocol
c) if you illegally download copyrighted materials with bittorrent, that's "illegal", but the usage of bittorrent is not by any means illegal.
