New P2p: Waste

How do I USE a source code?

In the beginning there was Napster. And the people said it was good. But the record companies smote it down in anger, saying that to share music files was to steal. Thus did the sharers/stealers create Grokster, Kazaa and Morpheus. And the Recording Industry Association of America visited a plague of lawsuits upon them. Then it came to pass that Justin Frankel of Nullsoft created Waste, a deceptively simple program designed to create impenetrable peer-to-peer networks for file sharing, or any other private activity. Whatever your position on the ethics of digital file sharing, Waste is a winner of a program from a privacy-protection standpoint. The software lets users set up private, encrypted networks of up to 50 anonymous users over the Net. Each network is independent, there is no central server and all transmissions are encrypted, so participants' instant messaging, group chats and file sharing are all anonymous and untrackable. Though not officially supported by any company, the program is widely available online. Free

Waste isn't new, it was released months ago.

You know that the linux version is just a server? It don't have a user interface. You have to use the windows software to chat and download.
