The Null Device

( Evil file-sharing racketeers / for-profit freedom fighters ) KaZaa have released an alpha Linux client, allowing Penguinistas to steal from poor, helpless recording corporations without the indignity of installing Wintendo like all the other kids. Wonder whether it includes the infamous spyware that the Windows version has; or indeed whether it requires to be run as root so that it can send all your visited web pages to some evil marketing firm.

Then there was giFT, an open-source, reverse-engineered client for FastTrack (i.e., KaZaa &c) networks, but that fell by the wayside when FastTrack changed their spec to break it.
