The Gnutella network was developed to be the first decentralized P2P file sharing network, having its technology been used ever since, as the base on which the majority of similar systems have evolved. The most important client for this network was LimeWare, but after its disappearance it's still used by many others like Cabos.
A worthy successor
Cabos was born as a project that was directly based on LimeWire, even though having enough differences to make sure that they were clearly differentiated. To make the client lighter, Cabos did without the chat and the file library that were included in LimeWire, and the program's code was adapted to the project manager's liking, removing a large amount of the Java basis to replace it with REALbasic.
Integration with iTunes
One of the things that made it easier for Cabos to avoid including its own media library was its full integration with iTunes, that avoiding the need for the development of its own storage system because it already included one.
The Cabos interface is very simple and has three areas that are clearly delimited:
- Searches and Results
- Detailed Information
- Connection Information
Therefore, if you want to use one of the most widespread and used file exchange clients, you only have to download Cabos for free.
