WinNY Description:

WinNY application screenshot

Winny (also known as WinNY) is a Japanese peer-to-peer (P2P) file-sharing program which claims to be loosely inspired by the design principles behind the Freenet network and which also claimed to keep user identities untraceable. While Freenet was implemented in Java, Winny was implemented as a Windows C++ application. This is the version that is mostly in English.

Operating System Support: Win98/ME/NT/2000/XP

Winny is cool programme but sometimes it downloads for a few seconds then starts searching again :(

55555 Great!

Can I just add that after installing the Japanese version of Win98, WinNY works perfectly and after downloading an up-to-date nodes list I downloaded something on my first attempt!

This English version of WinNY works well and it didn't take me long to get the hang of it, however when I rightclick a downloaded file that's in the cache folder and select "convert" it does nothing. I worked out this is probably because my version of win98 doesn'l allow most Japanese characters in filenames so it's unable to generate the file. In a future version of the English WinNY it'd be good if you included the option to choose a new filename, or to make it choose a random filename, so people whose o/s doesn't support Japanese filenames can access the files.
