6. Make a search on P2P file sharing applications. Among all P2P services (other than
Ares), which one caught your interest the most? Explain why (interface, features,
add-ons, performance, license type, ratings etc.)

I choose WinMX because WinMX one of pretty old peer to peer file sharing program has suffered due to lowsuite and its official website and server is now offline form 2005 although WinMX program is still operating successfully.WinMX network has limited number of Viruses and also it has restriction of maximum file size can be shared is 2 GB only.WinMX is majorly used for audio and video file sharing but you can use it for sharing any types of files. Also Supported Operating system: Win XP/NT 4.x/2003/2000/Vista.

License type is freeware.

Rating review is 5 star.
