Gnutella2, Gnutella3, Gnutella4...?
With the publication of the of the Gnutella2 specs and the latest Shareaza
beta, 188.8.131.52, the Gnutella2 network is shaping up well.
The past week has seen the spirit of peace and harmony return to the GDF

Domain Name: GNUTELLA3.COM

If Vinnie's intentions are honourable, why hasn't he announced this
