any application like kazaa for linux

hello, just want to ask, is there any software like kazaa for linux, thanks just want to try if it would be faster on a linux machine than a windows, cause i observe that a linux machine browses the internet apparently faster than a win98 machine so i was hoping to try maybe it might download faster also. anyway thanks

Try Limewire or the many others. I just keep a crappy windoze ME box connected to my server for the purpose of Kazaaing. Let the virus's kill it. It's Windoze ME after all. I have heard that there are good P2P clients for Linux, but that they don't have nearly the user base that Kazaa has..

Do not use limewire, it sucks just as all gnutella clients do, look for a direct connect protocol program, I suggest dcgui:
