''Deelan, Naanou sounds great but it's written using the .NET technologies. Unfortunately, these don't play too well with Mozilla.''

yeah, it's not cross-platform and has an heavy IE dependency (it uses IE to browse remote shared files).still i think it sports very nice features and ideas you could use in your project. keep an eye on it. i always thought that naanou and other similar projects could lead to personal "instant" service/websites, that is, users can not only share file but also web pages and other stuff. this concept in some ways is similar to freenet distribuited websites.

mmm, dunno if they would really useful.
