What is USENET ?
A world-wide distributed discussion system. It consists of a set of " newsgroups " with names that are classified hierarchically by subject. "Articles" or "messages" are "posted" to these newsgroups by people on computers with the appropriate software -- these articles are then broadcast to other interconnected computer systems via a wide variety of networks. Some newsgroups are "moderated"; in these newsgroups, the articles are first sent to a moderator for approval before appearing in the newsgroup. Usenet is available on a wide variety of omputer systems and networks, but the bulk of modern Usenet traffic is transported over either the Internet or UUCP.
But ... what really USENET IS ?
Well, let me tell you my definition. Usenet is a network of servers that holds the so called "newsgroups". These "newsgroups" are related to several topics, you can talk about music, software any topic you can imagine. It is very similar to the emails, just that these messages are public and you can read the messages from everybody using a newsreader. And similary to the email, you can attach files, any file you can imagine and therefore you are free to download any of these files posted from other people, they are uncensored !! Yes ! and they are free !
