Linux P2P clients that don't suck...

I have tried Limewire gtk-gnutella, and came to the conclusion that gnutella in general really sucks. I was wondering: what p2p clients do you guys use? I would hate to install windows windows on this h/d just to run KaZaA Lite under WINE *sigh*. Thanks, and good evening!

I like giFT. Easy to set up, and a lot of content available. And giFTcurs is dead sexy.

DCGUI by far is the best client I've used. I've never touched *Donkey or GiFT so I cannot compare to how those run, I do know dcgui is great though.
