Exclamation What might be the best Peer to Peer program for Linux?



I was wondering which program would be best for downloading simply music. I saw on some desktop screenshot that someone had Kazaa for Linux. I was thinking that this might be an app using wine. But I was not sure . If anyone could let me know, I just wanted to find the best P2P program out there. It doesnt have to be all types of files either. I just want to download music. I also know it is illegal, but then again, everything should be open source, heh
Thanks again!

Napshare is good. And it's relatively easy to set up.

NapShare

Cool, thanks viniosity. that was the easiest possible setup. And it works! Just download the linux rpm, as root do rpm -Uhv and the run it as user. I wish all apps ran like that

Limewire is awsome. I use only that. Have not tried much of the rest so I don't know if it's the best.

Gtk-gnutella is a great gnutella client, and IMO much more featureful (as well as responsive) than LimeWire.

Apollon is a nice Gui, works just like the older versions of kazaa. logs into Gnutella, Fastrack, and OpenFT networks.
