Although widely used, currently popular peer-to-peer (P2P) applications offer no user privacy. By design, services like BitTorrent and Gnutella share data with anyone that asks for it, allowing a third-party to systematically monitor user behavior. As a result, using a P2P network means that your online activities become public knowledge. OneSwarm is a peer-to-peer tool that provides users with explicit control over their privacy by letting them determine how data is shared. Instead of sharing data indiscriminately, data shared with OneSwarm can be made public, shared with friends, shared with some friends but not others, and so forth.
Flush is a GTK+ BitTorrent client. It allows you to run many instances with different configurations for the same user, to create your own torrent files, and to set a custom download path for each file of the torrent. It also allows you to control a running instance from a command line interface: start/stop torrents, change download/upload rate limits, and change the maximum connections limit. Finished downloads can be automatically copied to a specified directory, and old torrents can be automatically removed.
