couldn't find a thing. UI is ugly as sin... no, it's uglier than sin. p2p has so many better looking/better performing apps.

Works fine, but I don't get a lot of results for searches. It would seem there aren't too many Myster file-sharers out there. On the plus side, Myster's bare-bones interface now has a few more features.

The included game plug-in, "Space Smilies", is a fun (and funny?listen to the audio while playing) Space Invaders clone. Hint: you can only have one of your laser blasts on screen at a time-- if you fire again, your existing shot disappears.

I'm waiting for when a true OX GUI Open FastTrack client for Mac appears (sorry, I don't like using the command line). iSwipe and MLdonkey are getting there.

Very fast downloads but... why does it have to crash so often? I'll be checking daily for the next version. Myster has real promise.

Myster is the first true Mac equivalent to Kazaa. It allows for multiple threading searchs in multiple file genres. Its interface is a little more advanced than windows based peer to peer networks, but it is manageable enough. The file downloading scheme does not allow the user to easily pick a downloading point (if you wanted to keep shares and downloads separate) and forces you to use the Myster folders as a means of sorting. Other than that its only drawback lies on the user end of the connection. More users will not slow the system, rather it will increase the supply of files availible.

Some key features of Myster include:
  • A completely distributed framework of peers, eliminating any need for a central server
  • The ability to search the network without "flooding" it with requests for information.
  • Support for multiple types of data, not just MP3s
  • A realtime, self-organizing and self-optimizing network
  • A user friendly interface
