    Cabos is described as 'free Gnutella file sharing program. It is based on LimeWire's source code, and has a similar feel in terms of interface. It lacks the chat and library features found in LimeWire' and is an app in the File Sharing category. There are eight alternatives to Cabos for a variety of platforms, including Windows, Mac, Linux, BSD and OpenSSL. The best alternative is RetroShare, which is both free and Open Source. Other great apps like Cabos are eMule (Free, Open Source), Nicotine+ (Free, Open Source), Shareaza (Free, Open Source) and MLDonkey (Free, Open Source).
