Additional Comments

Not sure if I maybe missing some special Windows program to make Bearshare run or not. It wants to start, but crashes on startup. I am going to look into it more and will report back if I get it running.

HowTo / Notes


"BearShare" versions "v6" and up, released since Free Peers was shut down in the summer of 2005, are not the original gnutella servent at all; rather they are proprietary iMesh clones which limit user choice and employ Microsoft DRM to lock users into a monthly payment plan and requiring payment for each track burned to a CD.

 As the DRM is proprietary to Microsoft (and keyed to a P2P-hostile company in this case), these versions will never be allowed to work in WINE or any operating system not provided by Microsoft.
