    Is there any equivalent of Kazaa Lite for Mac OS X? I really want to use Kazaa on my new iBook but minus the spyware :-\

    If there isn't one, what are some good file sharing programs for the Mac?

    I'd take Kazaa with the spyware. :( No, there is no Kazaalite on OS X.

    Neo is supposedly works off the Kazaa network. I don't know, doesn't work for me . . .

    Two good file-sharing programs for Mac OS X that I've used are Limewire (www.limewire.com) and Acquisition (www.xlife.org/acquisition). Limewire is a bit slow, but Acquisition runs fine (they each use around 40 to 50 MB of memory). I've mostly been pretty successful with these two programs for downloading music.

    where the concrete to dirt ratio is better
    i would recommend aquisition also. there is also direct connect and xnap out there for your sharing needs.

    iSwipe is (with upcoming versions) getting much better because it connects to many different network.
    Limewire is okay... but a little slow and hogs some resources after running it for a while...

    Acquisition is nice but again it is for only music.

    Neo is good to use for the fast track network but it is hard to use and you need a lot of files to start off sharing or most places will boot you off.

    First of all, acquisition is used mostly for porn, not music. What are you talking about?

    And secondly, Neo works off users running Kazaa, which does not require you to share a lot of files... what are you talking about?

    Really pr0n? I didn't look at using it that way...

    And all the Neo hubs I connect to need like 500 files or 1 Gig + of Stuff to share... :(

    i like acquistion. I find lots of music on there weather it be new and popular or old and obscure. not as good as kazaa but the best i've tried so far, i believe it uses gnutella but its much better than limewire which is a dog and is awful in so many ways. acquisition as a PERFECT interface which is a big plus. I havn't tried out neo but i will right after i get done typing this.

    can't people learn to use that handy-dandy search function here on macrumors?

    there are so many kazaa/kazaa lite/file sharing threads already

    You are talking about Direct Connect, not Neo.
