I would recommend you Shareaza:

>>> http://www.shareaza.com/ <<<

It is a fantastic feature-rich program without any spyware, with many advanced options (but it keeps them simple), speed and with 100's better-than-kazaa reasons for it's use. Also, It's Open Source ;-).

I've been using it for 6 months now and all things I can say are positive. For closer feature inspection:

I recently switched from K++ to Limewire, and I couldn't be happier. There are too many fragmented files on Kazaa, I won't ever use it again.

edonkey is great once you get past the firewall problems and can connect to all the servers.
