    Is there a peer to peer file sharing program available for the mac os? I just browsed the Kazaa site and it doesn't appear to be available for the mac. Thanks in advance.

    I tryed some and think Acquisition to be the best on out there. If you want to download torrent files try Azureus or Tomato Torrent, but are good.

    I believe Lime Wire is a Mac compatibal P2P. I also here it can mess up your Mac by acting a bit like spyware or something, but I realy don't know anything because I have never used P2P.

    So long, and thanks for all the fish!
    Don't use LimeWire for Mac P2P, it's a bloated pile of crap. Acquisition is based on the LimeWire core, and so they are functionally the same, but Acquisition has a strond development team and is a very nice P2P app IMHO.

    I agree with what has been said about Acquisition, it is the best IHMO. This Thread had a recent discussion about them.

    Well I'm glad I read this thread (and the one linked in the post above). I've been using LimeWire ever since I switched to a Mac last month, but just downloaded (and registered) Acquisition. Seems to work really well. Thanks for the recommendation.

    Yeah I also use Acquisition but I find the nags so annoying :p
    It phones home so no pirating (kinda ironic ay, something that can't be pirated can pirate everything else :rolleyes: ) for this piece of software.
    I also use Limewire because sometimes it gets better servers than AQ.

    And remember, don't pirate stuff...

    An awesome place
    How about this one?

    Anybody has any bad experiences with this one.

    I used it last night and it seems to be pretty good.

    Xfactor is a great p2p app using the giFT daemon to connect to openFT, gnutella, and fasttrack. And when giFT .12 comes out it will be capable of connecting to soo much more :eek: . But I also may be a little bit biased ;)

    I recently discovered acqlite and have been using it exclusively ever since. It's a free (GPL) based on Acquisition, only without the nag dialogs. Same functionality and style, different app and price (free!).
