After suffering Limewire's five to ten minute lock-ups, and Mactella's crashing my system (9.1), I finally find what seems to be a remarkable gnutella program. Its quick, simple and, to date, has had no ill effects on my system at all! I hope that this beta version becomes a full one, with very little changes (don't screw it up!).

The worst stability I have ever seen! Keeps running out of memory on me. I hope that this application either gets better or is discontinued!

this is great for searching (finds more files than limewire, xfactor) and downloads better than xfactor but is still very unstable it frequently needs restarting which isn;t much use if you want to leave the machine running overnight.

You mean you can get that piece of junk to actually finish a download? Wonders will never cease!

This isnt that great. Limewire is even less great. Who uses limewire anymore anyway? Poisoned is the best p2p program on the Mac today by far....

Well thats scary... All those problems everyone else is talking about and it runs really well on my Powerbook 3400/240 True it doesnt run all the networks but it doesnt crash, it downloads quite well and doesnt crawl on the slow cpu. All it needs really is a PPC fast-track client too and it would be perfect.

This thing totally sucks - an amazing amount of very impressive UI work and scripting must have gone on to produce... err... this thing that does not work (G4, OS X, DSL, latest updates, etc.) I know you get nothing for free in this life - this is no exception. Use Limewire or just buy stuff! How you supposed to rate it for value??? It's free (good value) Doesn't work (bad value)

If it's free it might still not get the highest value rating if it wastes your time. There are some amazing things that are free, like Open Office, The GIMP, Audacity... many more actually. Those are all open-source too. This ought to be a great little app. The author seems to be putting a lot of time into it, so if there are still significant problems it'd seem like they'll be fixed.

This developer USED TO provide timely updates, in the past year or more this has NOT been the case. This is and always has been the worst app of its kind, regardless of timely updates or not. The developer should let it die on the vine rather than spend his valuable time trying to make what is still a sow's ear into a silk purse. It ain't gonna get better, so don't hold your breath.

Very frustrating to use. Even with ADSL connecting takes ages. Haven't been able to do a single download because everything is timed out or gets dropped.

Looks great! Gives you the idea to find more. But all downloads I've tried, were timing out! Imac,cable, OS9. Not even thinking about buying it!
