ⓘ Cabos

Cabos was a free gnutella file sharing program. It was based on LimeWires open source code, and had a similar feel in terms of interface. However, its simplistic and minimalistic design lacked the chat and library features found in LimeWire. Also, while LimeWire is completely written in Java, the GUI of Cabos was written in REALbasic.
