"It isn't the original BearShare"

May 07, 2009  |  By Aaron.Walkhouse

 |  Version: BearShare 7.0

Pros

There are no pros.

Cons

It doesn't even connect to the gnutella network, instead limiting you to a proprietary network formerly known as iMesh. The limited selection of music you can rent can be revoked at any time for any reason and you have no recourse or refund.

Summary

This isn't file sharing software, It's a music rental service owned by a former RIAA exec. The only thing people have reported liking about this thing is the social networking features, and you can get that elsewhere in more reliable forms for free.
