It is a client that connects you to the Gnutella p2p network. Much like how limewire was. I don't know if linewire still exists as a file sharing software though

Gnutella network is older then torrents , something on which Napster used to run , limewire was closed more then a year ago , frostwire always there as a better and free version of limewire, dunno as best as i know the gnutella network was also shut down by devs some time back so it is strange frostwire was running !!

I read a few days ago that from the next release frostwire will become only a torrent client and will drop gnutella support.
