Yea it was Limewire that put me off gnutella a bit..
the java base interface to blame for it being slow
to work with.
It didnt seem particularly efficient using a dial-up connection,
but maybe its improved since i last used it.

Audiogalxy got the long awaited mugging from the RIAA last week, not one
single sone is available for download, not even songs placed in to the
domain without copyright.
Limewire (http://www.limewire.com) is a good bet, but it's a right b**tard
get going as it requires a JRE and takes a bit of fiddling to get going.
Alternatively you can run KazaaLite for Windows under WINE. The interface is
a bit screwed up under WINE, but there's no spyware and there's plenty of
material on the system, thats where I managed to find a copy of Ding a Ding
Dong by Teach-in group.
