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.

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.
