Why are OS9 users always left out of the picture?
The last, I'd say, two months, I've been looking for a p2p program that connects to the FastTrack (Kazaa, Grockster) network, and is OS9 supported. After two months, I still cannot find a single P2P program besides Limewire (BTW, it doesn't connect to FastTrack) that connects to that network, and actually does what it supposed to do.

I tried a program called MacFileGrabber, but it only connects to only half of the networks it advertises it connects to.

My desperate plea is why we are always left out of the picture to many mac programs. We already get left out with Windows computers. Why can't programmers program their programs that will suit both OSX and OS Classic OS?

I guess a follow-up is, is there any p2p programs that does connect to the FastTrack network?

Raderick, I hate to break it to you, but the classic Mac OS is officially dead. Especially for developers. SJ buried our beloved, venerable classic Mac OS. Developers that continue to support OS 9 are being gracious. I loved the classic OS too, but its retirement was simply overdue. If you need additional functionality not available on OS 9 (and you cannot run OS X), you may consider installing Linux.

Linux is one road that most Mac users do not consider especially people who still use Mac OS 9.

Your going to have to surrender and buy a new Mac if you want most of the file sharing abilities that pc users enjoy and get sued for"L"

I think a big clue is this forum: only two active topics.

We've now had 3 to 4 years of OS X - developers quite rightly are being encouraged to only program for OS X. As already stated, if you can't run OS X Linux may be a better option for you.
