Y'all remember DirectConnect? Kazaa? WASTE? Restroshare? You know, software where you could offer your entire media collection for share and people could browse and download as they liked?

What's the modern version of that, which

a) works, stably; and
b) is cross-platform at least to Linux and Windows?

@deutrino I shared some 20G of music with Retroshare, but no one downloaded a thing, and also because i had very few contacts. No one adopted it. People thar adopted it, in my experience, w people seeking for privacy, and not willing to share many things...

I tried downloading two albums from RetroShare, and ended up with a couple dozen unsorted mp3 files in my RetroShare downloads directory. Not a great way to share folders of files.
