What P2P is the best?


Well let hear what is the best P2P that is made for Linux. No wine stuff here. I want to know what is the best? tar.gz, .rpm, tar.bz2, No .exe

giFT -- http://gift.sourceforge.net/

Everything you need to connect to any major p2p network is there. I use apollon in X windows, and giFTcurs in cli.

And the problem with bittorrent is that although it's great once you find a torrent to download, it doesn't have that large a torrent base, and you have to search around for a torrent, no central searching.

Just my $0.02
