The best sharing program, only could be better the day they drop java and make it native windows soft. No adware, no spyware, clean interface.

if torrents and soulseek were never invented, and i still believed the gnutella network wasnt dead in the water, this would definitely be my filesharing app of choice.

any step away from java is a step in the right direction.

What's wrong with these ret***s?

0.7.5 -> Wouldn't install on Vista x64.
0.7.6 -> Fixed to install on Vista x64.
0.7.7 -> Yet again won't install on x64.

I don't get it.. someone please help me understand?

EDIT: Nikkie its all there in plain old beautiful English.

No nags with those damn moving buttons like two other programs have, even if they are supposed to be freeware. Cabos is clean, efficient and just plain awesome. If only I could give it a ten!

Not bad. I like the minimalist approach, and the adequate set of options.

My only wish, for now, is that the filter could be set to "Music" (or whatever you choose) by default. Rates a solid 4.5.

Cool application, but there are only 4 networks, so not very useful. This is after forwarding ports in router and opening firewall, I confirmed port is open so nothing blocking it and I can download fine.

Would be nice if you could minimize to system tray without having to use third party applications.

Excellent! Best file sharing program. Very stable and fast!

Changes for v7.5:
Auto-rename downloads when the same filename already exists.
Better spam filtering.
Fixed filename encoding. (Windows)
_________
Very resource efficient as far as java applications go, and download speeds are decent enough. I'd never use Limewire for a list of reasons; use Frostwire and save yourself trouble, otherwise, this is more efficient than either of them.

Also, it would be hard for Cabos to ever cave in because it's just the application, and Gnutella is not held on a simple chain of webservers; it would take a Holy Grail to take down the Gnutella network, which brings me to another point: the Cabos author didn't create the network, he merely created a client that accesses it, meaning he couldn't be held liable because he doesn't promote piracy either.

Giving this one a ten! Simple interface. No frills. No damn annoying startup windows asking if I want the "pro" version.

Back to Cabos now and am enjoying some neat finds just by browsing. Only had 1 "dud" file in 15 trys
and alot less Spam now. Torrents are great but torrent pages like Demonoid aren't available in Canada now. File sharing is threatened. Cabos is one P2P that hasn't caved in to threats like so many file share resources. Enjoy it while you can!

Just tested this NEW version (v0.7.3) this morning.

At first, I couldn't see any immediate changes. So I checked the changelog.

For those of you who have been using this app for a few months, two things will stand out like a sore thumb (once you know what to look for):

* Improved network connection
* Improved spam filter

Cabos now connects to the Limewire networks in a matter of SECONDS. Previously, it could take a few minutes to connect, which was one of my very few gripes.

Spam filtering is MUCH better, which seems to be the biggest complaint I get from customers who aren't as P2P savvy as the rest of us and accidentally download those "BuyCheapMP3" files.

Keeps getting better and better. Nice!!
