    Whats the chance of a file sharing website taking off?

    Well I'm thinking about starting a file sharing website where
    people can share anything they uploaded on RapidShare: music,
    movies, applications, ebooks etc.

    Before going head on into programming and designing the web site
    I'd really appreciate your thoughts on what to look out for and
    what are the chances of this becoming successful.

    Tnks in advance.

    I think it's pretty good considering they have a viral nature. I have one myself that gets a little traffic, but the software sucks, and I need to get a better one. It only seems to be able to handle very small files.

    I suspect you would be a year too late :(

    With anything new the early adopters have an advantage. late comers have to start throwing money around or have a better product.

    Would you mind if I ask if you're using your own data servers or a cloud storage solution? If you're using cloud storage, what sort of data costs are we looking at?
