    Limewire actually had a Mac-native client until their shutdown. There's also a Frostwire port, as well as Mac versions of a number of other apps that run on the Gnutella network--do a search for Gnutella on MacUpdate. There are also clients for the other P2P systems, some of them very good.

    I was under the impression Frostwire was donezo like Limewire. False? I liked it a lot.

    Frostwire still exists and can be downloaded from: http://www.frostwire.com/

    I am hoping this is going to be used strictly for sharing commercial non-copy righted material ;)

    How is Acqlite? Does it mess up your computer? I saw it has a lot of really bad reviews on Cnet...

    I used a older version with Snow Leopard and it didn't seem to modify any system files or cause any harm (I have not tested it since the upgrade to Lion).

    Also I can't remember if it has iTunes integration, but if it does I would not use it.
