Share is new P2P file sharing network which use ideas of Winny and takes more features.
After Winny was stopped development,Share was started by anonymous Japanese engineer
He has no website or handle name,Because it is very risky to make P2P file sharing
software in Japan.Japanese police consider it is illegal to develop P2P software.
Users of Share called him Villege mayor or "Soncho".
Share network is not compatible to any other P2P network.
I think more than 10,000 peoples connect Share network,almost from Japan.
Uploading file is enciphered and convert to cache file and transfer to the
Downloader like Winny.
Cache file of Share is not conpatible to Winny's one and only Share can decode.
Unique feature of Share is force diffusion files.
If you put your files in upload folder.Share will convert to cache file and devided to
many pieces about 1MB each.Share will upload those pieces to neighborhood nodes.
A(Uploader) (Convert to cache file)
So file transfer is always relayed by someone.The security of uploader will be kept by this feature
than Winny or other P2P.
User can set "cluster words" untill five(Winny can set untill three)
The nodes which set up common WORD become easy to connect
rather than other nodes.
Min 700Mhz CPU
You need fast connection more than T1.Not for ISDN modem users.
You need many HDD disc space(Min 10GB) for cache files.
Share is experimental.NOT newbie,If you don't know about Winny,You should check Winny before try Share.
