Easiest p2p client for linux!

okay, i tried gift but i had problems... Tried emulating kazaa but i guess you have to get certain dll files... tried xmule in CLI but didn't really like that soooo... I got winmx! its really easy to use, just like windows cuz of wine. Here's how you get it:

1. Download any version of wine and install (i had winex)
2. Download Winmx from here
3. In terminal:
$winex winmx331.exe
4. It will start an easy to use install... All you have to do is point and click

Thats what i did for my p2p client anyways

Is this a new feature? I thought xmule (lmule) are GUI-only Clients.

You could also try the original Overnet-Client with the 3rd-Party-GUI. It's not that bad. I'm in mldonkey, not that easy but IMHO the best.
