A new project to create a striped down P2P app specifically designed to exploit the power of magnetlinks in all their glory (may even get .magma too!). GnuGet is based on (real) Shareaza and will used the G2 network ;)
Quote: (Source: What is Gnuget?)
GnuGet is a lightweight download manager style P2P application. Here are some of the things that make GnuGet Unique:
    1. It is extremely small
    2. It is OS independent (written in Java)
    3. It uses a whitelist to pro-actively fight piracy and encourage the sharing of open source software
    4. It uses magnet links on official sites instead of a search function so you can be sure you are downloading official files.
    5.Stops users downloading spam, misnamed files, corrupt files, or infected files.
    6.Helps to clean up the G2 network because bad magnet links are removed, and without the magnet link the bad files are in limbo.
    7. Allows charities and open source projects offset download/ bandwidth costs while ensuring their specified files are downloaded via P2P.

If this works out it will be the P2P app of choice for Artists Unchained!
