Some of you may have seen that Ben from Cheese or Sausage has tested Qnext with me today and we both absolutely loved it. I know that I recently talked about a Private P2P (Project Neon), but Qnext is just too good to not be mentioned. Qnext is a Private P2P that allows you to do just about anything that you can think of. Right off the bat upon installation, you will create an account. This account will be your username that you can give to people to share your movies, music, pictures, and whatever it is you may want to share. The username that you create will also be used with the contact and communications panel that will show your friends, family, groups, and other users. On selecting a name in the contact list is where the fun comes in and will allow you to access the users “zones.”

Now let me give you a little rundown of what Qnext is capable of. Qnext hit communication right on the money with features such as Instant Messaging with Qnext users and even users from AIM, Yahoo, MSN, and ICQ. You can do VOIP to anyone that has a mic (free), and if you want to go a notch above voice communication, you can do Live Video Conferencing to receive video from the users webcam in real time. Want more methods of communicating? Qnext even has a built in chatroom system and an IRC interface.

Another feature that impressed me was the Photo Sharing zones as you see in the above screenshot. It will give you a listing of the photographs that insert into the zone with detailed thumbnails. On selecting a thumbnail and dragging it to the viewing area, you can get a full view of the photo with zooming and rotating features. Very well done job on this. And if you were wondering, those are my photographs that I have taken.

Above is a screenshot of the Jukebox zone. This is my personal favorite area because when someone is connected and has their Jukebox accessible to you, you are given the ability to view their library of music and stream any song that is inside of it. You cannot download the music, although you can simply do this in the File Transfers area, but the streaming is all I need to be happy. When Ben was on and had his open, I was able to view his large library of music and see what kind of music he is interested in and listen to them. At anytime a user is online and has a Jukebox, you can stream any of the music available in the list. Also, from looking at the screenshot, you can see that the music is sorted. You can sort the music by Album, Artist, or Genre. You even have the choice to make playlists.

Qnext has many more amazing features such as QnextMyPC. QnextMyPC is their secure P2P-based Remote Access service that gives you “fast, easy and secure access to your computer from anywhere in the world using a standard Web-browser. You can remotely access your email, applications, files and network resources as if you were sitting directly in front of your computer.” Want more? Qnext even has games that you can play with users with the games Go, Chess, Checkers, Backgammon. If you don’t have anyone to play with, you can play against the computers. Maybe I should work on my chess before playing someone. The File Sharing also has no limitations and is extremely fast from what I can tell.

Qnext is definitely the best P2P that I have used and I am positive that you will agree. It is available for Windows, Macintosh, and Linux. My username is bbenzinger if you wanted to get in touch. Enjoy!
