Next version of Morpheus will bridge FastTrack and Gnutella

Written by Petteri Pyyny (Google+) @ 28 Dec 2001 3:11

MusicCity told to its users in weekend that it will ship a new version of its P2P program, Morpheus, in next year that will add support for Gnutella P2P network. By doing this, MusicCity would bridge two of the biggest independent P2P networks, creating a P2P "monster" that would contain almost 75% of all traded files in all P2P networks.
Both networks operate without central servers and therefor are almost impossible to shut down. Gnutella network was originally developed by Nullsoft founder Justin Frankel and it rapidly became an open source P2P network that has multiple free clients connecting to it -- FastTrack has a different story, it's a network developed by Dutch-based company called FastTrack who licenses its source code and has currently three licensee; MusicCity, Kazaa and Grokster.
