File Sharing - Peer to Peer
CPU cycle sharing for general good
Media Sharing Software:
I tried MyNapster and it big brother Gnucleus(open source and ad free) instead which uses the Gnutella network. I found people set up client to serve up false files to search requests that contain webpage redirect from MPEG/MP3 files. Gnucleus comes with a screen out list of know nodes that do this, and both can add IP manually.
Also Gnutella network does not it seems have ability to add file info, keywords and description other than in file name, which means searchs tend to bring up files that have been created to be picked up in searchs, which are not necessary the files you want. I seem to get better search results with Grokster. But Gnutella is more durable a network in long term.
Having moved to using Linux I started to use GTK-gnutella but now use amule
other p2p clients
