Any other suggestion? I dislike BitTorrent. I like more P2P applications like Shareaza. Shareaza has access to 4 different networks (Shareaza, eDonkey, Gnutella 1 and Gnutella 2). Is there some application like this that I could use on Linux?

Frostwire is awesome. Easy to use and setup. It replaced Shareaza in Windows for me. There are many different package formats available too.

i haven't used it in a long time, but giFT has gnutella support, plus fasttrack and openft. nicotine (soulseek) is my favorite non-bt p2p, but it's maybe more specialized in what you'll find (indie, techno, electronica, etc.)

There's also aMule, the equivalent of eMule.

Personally I use Phex. Connects to the Gnutella network (Same one as Limewire).

As for BT, I've found it quite useful for large things, such as a Linux ISO, among other things... But I do admit that it isn't all that useful if you want a small file, like an MP3 or something.
