Soulseek (http://www.slsknet.org) is a communication and file-sharing system. It is quite similar to Napster: it lets you exchange files, search for files, chat with other users in public and in private, browse their files, and get recommendations for music. SoulSeek for Linux is a GUI client for the system written in Python/wxPython. It includes all the major functionality: chat, searches, and file transfers.
