That's a nice list, MikeTHEs.
It looks like a lot of time and effort went into compiling the list.
I see you've recently updated the list, but due to the constantly evolving nature of P2P programs, I was wondering how often do you update it?

Something else that should be mentioned for anyone interested in using P2P (file sharing) programs.
These programs are one of the major causes of computer infections.
Not necessarily the program itself, but what's downloaded with the program.
Before anyone considers using a P2P program they should read, Risks of File-Sharing Technology, to better prepare themselves for what to expect.

There's also the illegal aspect of file sharing, depending on what's downloaded, such as copywrited material.
A person can find themselves in serious trouble with the authorities, if they are caught engaging in illegal activities.

Thanks MikeTHEs!

That is good news. KppFree was always my reference. But I thought it was no longer being maintained. The last update prior to this was 4th March 2006.
That I know of anyways.
