OneSwarm was created because current popular peer-to-peer networks suffer from a lack of privacy.

Instead of communicating directly, sharing in OneSwarm is friend-to-friend; senders and receivers exchange data using multiple intermediaries in an overlay mesh. OneSwarm is built on (and backwards compatible with) BitTorrent,

I installed this version [0.6.2] on my MacBookPro.

Upon launch it crashes, quitting unceremoniously.

I wish for the days when I could run KDX as a P to P

Client / Server software package. Oh well.

'Decompiling'? So what? Just because they can see 'what' a program does does not mean they can circumvent the process.

I know, I know, do not feed the troll.

The War on Terror government spooks just got their gold-plated job security in decompiling this!
