P2P File Sharing on OS X | November 4, 2003

For a long time, P2P file sharing was confined mostly to the Windows world as there was a distinct lack of file sharing software available on OS X. Mac users wanting to dip their toes in the murky world of p2p file sharing would invariably settle a copy of Limewire.

Recently there have been a number of new OS X p2p file sharing applications released including 2get, Acquisition and Drumbeat. However the one causing the most interest is Poisoned. This little app is simple to use, works across a number of networks and has a few nice features to make file sharing easier. So if you want to see what all the file sharing fuss is about, have a look at Poisoned. Just make sure you have permission to share or download the files first.

Can’t agree. For me, Acquisition works better.

Your site is great.
But - I thought I’ll let you know, if that’s important for you, that the shadow effect on your pages breaks in Win IE 5/6: the upper right corner does not display correctly (however, you may already know that).

you on crack ? poisened is not only far more refined than acquisition, it works across gnutella, fastrack and openft.
Sure poisened crashes a bit sometimes, and it lacks sorting on the downloads list, but acquisition is primitive and simplistic in comparison. and it Only works with the crappy gnutella network. last time i checked.

put the crackpipe down..

this is not a flame, its a refreshing wake up to reality :)
