gtk-gnutella too. It's not the prettiest of them, but it works damn well!

Oh, I use gtk-gnutella as well.
That wasn't a joke either - how often do you adjust the "random factor for the hops field in search packets" setting?

How about the "Amount of tolerable messages above hard TTL limit per node" setting ?

I'll rest my case. There's such a thing as over-engineering. To the people who made it, it makes perfect sense to include these settings. To the people who use it, it makes no sense at all.

Perhaps you could design an alternative interface, submit it to the developers and suggest it be included as an option for the less-than-techie amongst us? I agree that it can be a little overwhelming, and perhaps having an alternative interface to the same program would make it more acceptable.

An extra tab saying "Advanced Options" might do it.

Hehe! Yeah - I guess it would! So, you're not into artistic design, then?

I certainly used to be, and I like to fiddle with xmorph occasionally. I've met a lot of programmers who really like to fuss about whether an orange or mauve border complements a web control best. Weird. and that's something I can't be arsed with either.

Doesn't the fact that there IS one come in to play here? or rather on the user interface tab there's a checkbox to enable all that extra configurations, it's off by default, so you don't ever see it. or maybe you're just using an out of date version....

An extra tab saying "Simpler Options" might do it then.
