I downloaded DC++ - http://dcplusplus.sourceforge.net a few months ago because it was suggested. Since getting rid of WinMx I have been using this a lot. It is a little more tricky than Winmx and isn't like ONE big network. It is basically thousands of hubs with various topics, downloading and uploading with users in the hubs you are. I like it better much more than IRC.

I would suggest checking it out. Maybe if enough people like it, we can make a hub. If you have questions, check out the FAQ page. http://www.dslreports.com/faq/dc
