Gnutella is a fully-distributed information-sharing technology. Loosely translated, it is what puts the power of information-sharing back into your hands. What's interesting about Gnutella is that it isn't focused on trading MPEG music the way the other guys are. There is all kinds of stuff on the GnutellaNet, and when you get a search hit, it's virtually guaranteed to be there. No stale links. |
The other half of Gnutella is giving back. Almost everyone on GnutellaNet shares their stuff. Every client on the GnutellaNet is also a server, so you not only can find stuff, but you can also make things available for the benefit of others.
