When the Overnet and eDonkey2000 networks were still around, they were probably the best sources to find any sort of video, music, games, or photos on the net. However, as of late 2006, both have been shut down as a result of legal actions. Essentially, as with many other peer-to-peer networks, they were accused of sharing and distributing illegal material on the internet. Going to the Overnet and eDonkey websites will even bring up a message warning you not to download illegal material. You can still download and use the eDonkey client, that is if you manage to find a network to connect to and share files.
The eDonkey client, developed by Overnet, is a P2P file sharing program available for Mac users. It allows users to connect to various networks and share files. However, the application suffers from several deficiencies. The interface feels cluttered and confusing, although you can navigate through the different sections via tabs. Making changes in the preferences requires restarting the client for them to take effect. Additionally, the eDonkey client uses up a considerable amount of memory, which can hamper the use of other applications on your Mac. The network itself is the only great thing about this client, but with it being repeatedly shut down, it has become less and less reliable in recent months.
