Next Generation of the Fastest P2P Program - FrostWire (OpenSuSe)

FrostWire is a peer-to-peer file sharing program for the Gnutella and BitTorrent protocols. FrostWire is written in Java, and is a fork of LimeWire, another popular Gnutella client. Released under the GNU General Public License, FrostWire is free software.


    * As with LimeWire, FrostWire is written in Java, and is therefore capable of supporting multiple platforms.
    * While LimeWire is available in both free and paid versions, FrostWire is released only as a free version, the Windows version of which comes bundled with the toolbar. FrostWire includes much of the functionality of LimeWire's free version, as well as a few of LimeWire Pro's payment based upgrades.
    * FrostWire provides a chatroom, which is absent in LimeWire. However, LimeWire includes an instant messenger using the Jabber protocol and allows the user to share with individual friends in the messenger which is a feature not found in FrostWire. Starting from version, the chat feature of displays advertising to help pay for the required servers.[1]
    * FrostWire's interface was originally nearly identical to that of LimeWire. However, LimeWire 5.0 has a re-designed interface which has not been implemented by FrostWire. FrostWire's skin may be changed to a variety of different colors which is no longer an option in LimeWire 5.0.

If you are referring to the Djizoes "ad", it's not a pop-up - it's a free music download FrostWire features every now. These are mostly great Creative Commons licensed albums getting some free promotion :P

Do you like it now, or are you still against it?
