I previously wrote about Deluge being the best bit-torrent client, but for searching for individual media Frostwire suits my needs. Frostwire is an open source P2P client that resembles the populare Limewire with one catch – NO SPYWARE. aMule or GTK Gnutella didn’t fit the bill because it wasn’t as reliable as Frostwire. This is due to the fact Frostwire is connecting to the same network as Limewire which I found to be better.
The Frostwire team has released a Debian package for us Ubuntu users, so install away!
