Cabos was one of my go-to applications as far as file sharing went. It was quick, stable, and worked well under both OSX and Classic Mac OS (which I still used at the time).

Nothing much has changed since then, and it looks like the last update to the software was in 2010. Since then, I've been using FrostWire, which gives you stability, and the ability to more easily differentiate what's floating on (what's left of) the Gnutella network, as well as torrents and whatever else.

If you have an older machine, or a Mac that's short on memory that you just want a bare-bones sharing app, then Cabos is the way to go, assuming that Gnutella hasn't collapsed in on itself. Otherwise, I'd go with FrostWire at this point.

PPC? Come on man, that's outdated architecture. Code it UB or Intel so everyone can use it. It was updated in 2010 and it's still not Universal Binary? That's sad.

Since this program doesn't work on Snow Leopard, does anyone know of another program like it because I don't like using Limewire

I never liked Limewire either, and switched from Cabos to FrostWire.

Could you try this debug build?

But I strongly recommended Acqlite for Snow Leopard.

The Debug build seems to work just fine in Snow Leopard 10.6.2 now.

I've dropped FrostWire and have been using Acqlite instead. Cabos, however, is still preferred for sentimental reasons. :p I hope you continue to support it to run in SL.

Sweet! Cabos may be a little rough around the edged but it works real well on my Powermac DP 2.0 running 10.5.8.

Long time user, first time complainer. Will someone tell the developers (they offer no contact link on their site) that now when downloading a large file, that it will actually unravel - the progress number will go backwards, and substantially, I've watched it happen, like a sweater being unraveled. Makes it very difficult to complete a large download.

Cabos is great - smooth as.
Thanks for MacUpdate for keeping legacy versions for Panther!
(I got the 'cant find java' msg for the new one and had to reinstall...)
