I voted shareaza..overall is the best for me...however gnucleus is a great program. I think that the others still need to play catch up to Shareaza. Gnucleus needs more updates. I have had no problems with Shareaza connecting to G1.

Strange

I'm runnin on 256kb/s cable modem and It is so hard for Shareaza to connect to G1. Its taken up to 10 minutes to get a connection.Though G2 I must agree it connects like a charm. :wink:

This is a bit hard to say actually, which is the best, all have their advantages and disadvantages. I have tested the first one was Gnotella that was over 2 years ago which had the same slow feeling as Limewire.
After Gnotella there was a quite long period with Bearshare started with version 2 i think it was and ended with version 4 i reckon this client have evolved very much in terms of implementing features, I liked the webpage feature, but sadly they removed that, Im a statistic freak so i must say i liked the webstats they have, however i would have liked to see a new implementation of the stats covering much more. Same goes with other clients as well. I though Bearshare using much resources like Memory and Swap and started to feel a bit bulky atleast for my quite old machine now. Then i have tested Gnucleus 1.8.* i some what liked the look out of this one, felt lean in terms of memory and swap, but it didnt work well here, i think you have to have a quite strong machine in order for gnucleus to strieve. Then we have Xolox 1.4* a very slim client in terms of look and feel, very good search and download. Have some question over the host connection and reach of network, nothing informativ is shown in this client everything is stripped bar naked ;) Have no extra features at all thou. Since a started to sniff on Java programming i wanted to test a client in Java so here we are now with Limewire 2.9.0
well what to say its not a speed racer exactly, but works quite well, spares in terms of look, their statistic is not fully of the kind i want.

Well you said you didn't mind a moderator adding an option to the poll, so I did. Shareaza with only G2 enabled is by far the very best gnutella client I have ever tried.

Agreed. Speeds on G1 dont even come close to speeds on G2. I stil wouldnt call G2 "gnutella" yet, however.

Ya i now, i think i pass some alphas thou, i dont se the use of to install a new version for every small change they made, So I stick to 2.9.0 and wait for 2.9.6 instead. I did alot of beta test on beashare so i know how it works. :wink:

Attention!

Postby Sleipner » Thu Mar 13, 2003 1:37 am

I have spotted some really nasty stuff in in Limewire 2.9.0 Alpha
Im running Zonealarm and was alarmed then Jview wanted access to Internet, for those how dont
know Jview is MS Command line interpreter for Java. this wanted to listen on port 8337. a possible
security breach.The installer puts a registry entry in Windows run section of registry that runs both
Jview and Limeshop all the time even if Limewire P2P app itself is not running!So why on earth should both Jview and LimeShop
run all the time? there is no reason!! Therefor i have made a VB-script that will remove all registry entries and remove
those url:s and finally remove the entire Limeshop folder all together, it will not harm Limewire itself. So end of Data mining!!

Here is the link to the script, dont forget to change extension from txt to vbs. Then double click on it to run

http://w1.855.telia.com/~u85532694/LimeClean.txt

To Limewire i will say...Dont try anything! i always have my hawk eyes open!

Continue

Postby Sleipner » Fri Mar 14, 2003 6:23 pm

To continue with my findings earlier. I think its very ugly by Limewire to install Jview in always run state. Whats the purpose of this action if not to cast a easy blame on Microsoft for breach of security. I only say this if Limewire wants a backdoor to any system you implement it by yourself into Limewire P2P app and take the full responsiblility then discovered.

I think its sad then gnutella developer are doing this. Becuase Gnutella is not in any position to comprimize its users with either adwares, spywares or even worse with potential backdoors. So I think any downturn of gnutella network is developer to blame. and take responibility for.

Postby Juggalo15 » Sun Mar 16, 2003 1:59 pm

Haha,I'm amused that lil script of yours comes up as a virus when I run it b/c it changes the registry :lol:


Also I thought I'd let you know the Limewire Team is finally almost ready on releasing a new version of Limewire that is Skinnable,this will be around late 2.9.x or early 3.0.x though.

Oops! :lol:

I havent thought of anti-virus killers thou, well to all how wants to run the script may have to turn of their virus killers before they run.

Also have noted that Limewire in version 2.9.4 have thrown out the the worst bad stuff that was there in 2.9.0. Only some Url:s left now. I shall update the script some more to remove those link putted on the desktop also.

oh god was this a real poll? i mean damn, i came from kazaa and shareaza got me using it.. kazaa's 4 million users vs shareaza features.. but since i know more about computers than the average kazaa guys of course i chose shareaza... now like any other client would stand a chance against a client that converted me from a 4 million user base network..

Postby Juggalo15 » Sun May 18, 2003 10:36 am

It doesn't matter how many users kazaa has b/c you only recieve a search result back from about 10K. The new k++ though(beta's) allow a lot more results with the jump supernode and autosearch. On regular i think shareaza will search more than kazaa...and with the new updates limewire too. Speeds still dont compare to kazaa though I'm afraid.
