What can anyone tell me about Ruckus? The ITS guys here at my college recommend it- apparently it's legal and free. HOW CAN THIS BE???

Anyway, anyone heard of it, and can recommend it or not?

I love you =] I can't say I was very fond of you when we first started talking because you trolled the hell out of my threads, but after talking to you here I've grown very attached to you.

Yeah, write to my fanclub about it, honey.

I have a hunch your answer is there.

I want opinions that aren't paid testimonials.

Does it work good, does it have rare music, good quality, etc.

Ruckus is most likely pre-paid by your university. My university recommends it to us too. There's a pretty good selection, surprisingly. But the downside is that you can't transfer it over to your mp3 player or a CD. It's just there on your computer. My friend uses it and he found some pretty good music on there.

Edit: Damn, beaten to it by masterk!
Got METAL?

That does suck..but as of now, I really don't use my mp3 as much. Can it transfer to an mp3 library without charge? (I use SonicStage from Sony, by the way)

Im not 100 percent sure, but i would doubt it, you get like a library thing with the ruckus download, i very much doubt it. but i got it with my college is that what you get it for?

Ruckus is amazing. It doesn't have everything, but it sure does have a LOT. It surprises me that it doesn't carry Behemoth, but DOES carry Falkenbach or Anaal Nathrakh. So just explore it. It's free, but it's similar to Pandora in the sense that you can only really listen to things on the computer. Not a problem, though, since we're all on UG all day long anyways...

Yeah, someone just told me ITS recommended it; I use Limewire and my roommate just told me some horror story about his close friend getting busted with it in Boston somewhere and the whole school had to pay a fine, so I want to try this. I'd be fine with a library they give, but I worry about the selection: specifically, bands like The Beatles- Apple and Michael Jackson are very wary to turn over the rights...I imagine that's how it works.
