After thinking about people having troubles with low member counts on the Kazaa Lite p2p client, something in my mind just clicked. I remeber that there was a plan by the people who make Kazaa to weed out K-lite users, by making older versions of the program incompatible with newer ones. In other words, the last offical build of K-lite was built upon the (I only believe, it maybe even an earlier built) 2.4 Kazaa regular client.
To make it short, I believe that K-lite (v 2.4) supernodes can no longer connect to other "regular" Kazaa supernodes. However, normal nodes regardless of the version of Kazaa they are running can still connect to any supernode.
For example, if you start K-lite right now, you will only see some 80 thousand users online (you are connected to a K-lite based supernode). However, if you jump supernodes a few times you will notice the user count will eventually raise to about 2.4 Million (you are connected to a regular Kazaa supernode).
This will result in a very fargmented network. To what benefit I do not know, but I don't think it's going to be good.
All of the above is just a theroy.....
But, I'd like to think it is an educated one.
