Are there any file sharing programs for Linux?


Just like the title says, are there any programs like Kazaa, WinMX and the like?

I knew it was probably asked before, and I did search for File Sharing Programs ( in the newbie forum only) and it came back negative. Sorry m8 I should have looked more but there are so many thinks I need (want) to know.

I'll search harder next time and thankyou for the link, lots of good info there.

for a list of free sharing programs to go http://zeropaid.com

do NOT use Qtella, it sucks balls. i tried to download the song "boogie fever" and it would never be able to download it, i got so fed up that i went onto my Windows puter, downloaded it on Kazaa then FTPed it over

i heard that there is some Kazaa thing for Linux now but i'm not sure if it has a ton of spyware like Windows Kazaa does.
