Heap of sh*t. Just like most P2P clients I'e test-driven, its user interface is hopeless. Someone out there needs to get a clue and write a good tool. Needed are some buttons to press to make the tool do something!

Currently, the ones I've tried are all similar in design. They are al cheating of one another. No one is using any personal initiative and originality to design a utility that will work intuitively. Thy ll stink in a similar way. It's simply pathetic.

Developers: don't do it for free. I'm happy to pay. But Judas Priest, give me something that is stable, fully-featured, intuitive, functional and supported!!!!!

even tho shakespeer is good, if you're looking for the power of windows native version of dc++, take a look at jucy or eiskaltdc (java and qt multiplatform).
despite they're non-native os x apps, they're pretty powerful and shakespeer latest update was in 2009 and other attempts for a native dc++ clone on the mac are in alpha or beta forever.

Thanks for the alternate info, it's too bad I'd have to buy not only a new computer, but a new OS to use them. ^_^
Source code's available, so I'll take a look at that, but if everyone has to use a SL only version of Java, I probably can't futz with it.

you're right. the 'snow leopard only' and 'latest java only' trend is leaving some users behind. i'll be also left behind when 'lion only' warnings will start to sprout. i don't think i'll be upgrading to "iOS Lion".

Can't get it to work.
Punched holes in the firewall (port 1412), tried to test - it says timed out.
Used Passive mode instead - doesn't connect.

Seems like it's back to Limewire
