Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers
"Watch out Napster. A new entry into the file-sharing market has
arrived. Scour.net, one of the more popular web-based multimedia
search engines, has released new file-sharing software named Scour
"Like Napster's unofficial competitor Gnutella, Scour Exchange
lets users search for just about every multimedia format available
including MP3s and makes the files available for download to your
own hard drive."
"Scour hopes to reach even more people by promoting the software
through its web site and by encouraging people to take
advantage of Scour Exchange's open development program. The company
is encouraging program-savvy individuals to develop Scour Exchange
clients for other platforms such as Linux and BeOS."
