Why subscribe to Usenet when I could just do a search on google?

Question by theeshusher: Why subscribe to Usenet when I could just do a search on google?
Isn’t it the same thing? I hear that the biggest forum of all is still “Usenet.” That’s the same as “newsgroups” which can all be searched on goggle using the “news” option, right? Do many people still use it? Perhaps I’m missing out on half the internet. The “web” is only part of it.

Hi there,

The main reason to use Usenet is to download files–the latest movies, games, CD’s etc. You can get a full DVD (4.5 gigabytes) in a couple of hours on the right connection using usenet. The only problem is you have to pay!
