Why don't more people use gift?

Gift is this daemon so you can download off kazaa and stuff...It works really well, i tihnk its good. I mean it took me 15 m inutes to compile with a frontend and it downloads quicker then windows kazaa.

But i always here people say there is no kazaa for linux/

giFT has been in VERY active development up until a week ago, so when compiling from CVS, it wouldnt work half the time.

But now that giFT has had an official release, im sure more people will start using it.
