On Linux, simply type "make" to compile, and "make go" to run.
If you are a casual user, you should wait to download this
software as there is no installer (setup utility). For brave
people or developers, the whole source code is readily
If you like the excellent C# programming language and P2P
technologies, you will love this project. Gnutella2 is
definitely the most exciting decentralized P2P protocol out
there - and it has been for a while.

protocol, with no individual servers to shut down. There is
no investigating what hosts/servers are "good". It just
