Y'all remember DirectConnect? Kazaa? WASTE? Restroshare? You know, software where you could offer your entire media collection for share and people could browse and download as they liked?
What's the modern version of that, which
a) works, stably; and
b) is cross-platform at least to Linux and Windows?
@santiago Yeah, usage & sharing by random people is sparse without some critical mass of users. But for a friend group, "you should see/hear/read this, go to $app and grab it straight from my media folder" would be so much nicer than basically any other way we share >20MB files nowadays. If the userbase is largely people who already talk to each other it requires far fewer people to be useful. #Retroshare would be okay for this if the bugs & UX were less problematic. #p2p
