    The closest thing to Kazaa is limewire, but it's not all that great.

    Here are some more (with my personal opinions)

    Acquisition - kinda lame and you have to pay for it now
    Carracho - It's ok, it takes some getting used to
    iSwipe - Haven't had any luck yet
    Direct Connect - Just like the PC version
    Neo - a program that lets you tap into kazaa, but it's nothing like it.

    Overall the choices aren't very good, get Virtual PC and use kazaa through it.

    Yeah p2p sucks on mac. LimeWire is the best as of now. If you
    can afford VPC then get it, but there really isn't a good client for
    macs.

    Re: Thanks

    iSwipe works well, when it works. The most stable is XNap (OpenNap + Gnutella), and the most Gnutella results come from LimeWire.

    Oh, and check your Private Message box.
