LimeWire is probably the best gnutella client out there. There's no spyware or malware or any other crap that comes w/ most of the programs out there.

Lime Wire is a cross-platform software tool that enables peer-to-peer file sharing on the Gnutella Network. This tool is similar to the popular Napster service, in that it enables the sharing, searching, and downloading of MP3 music files. However, Lime Wire takes information sharing a step further by enabling the user to share and search for all types of computer files, including movies, pictures, games, word processing documents, recipes, and more..........

GNUTELLA:
The evil-geniuses at Nullsoft (creators of Winamp) first developed the protocol in late 1999.............it creates a revamped atmosphere on the Internet, enabling users to share information like never before. To put it simply, Gnutella puts the personal interaction back into the Internet. When you run Gnutella software and connect to the Gnutella Network, you bring with you the information you wanted to make public. And you choose what information to share. You can choose to share nothing; you can choose to share one file, a directory, or your entire hard drive

One of the major differences between Gnutella and Napster-like software is that those applications are centralized. That means the technology uses central servers where the government agencies can spy on you and infringe on your freedom to search the net..............So Gnutella allows you to search for information anonymously, and it allows you to search for information in a setting that differs from traditional search engines like Yahoo! because unlike search engines like that, the information is not controlled or fed to you. Nothing is pushed at you; you control what you look for.

yes most P2ps will automatically open up your computer for all to see, they can download anything from your pc, and sometimes upload to it, not a good thing,
gnutella will let you choose what you want to share and how where and when.

I would suggest WinMX or Ares before I would suggest programs like Limewire. Unless you can get the file through BT. Limewire is horrible.
