Looking for new torrent client. What are you using? Just DL'd the lastest utorrent - god awful adware, bloat, etc..

I use qBittorrent.  It's super lightweight and ad free. Open source, I think.

I've always been fine with Transmission (Mac for me, but there's now a Windows "early preview," I see). Can't make any comparisons but I've had no complaints, either. It's lean and effective.
Is this still Wombat?

I use old utorrent - v 2.2.1, from before it turned to shit

Definitely not Transmission for PC, it's awful.

I'm also using utorrent 2.2.1, it's fine I guess.

But, I don't think our fans do happily lap it up, I think they go online and talk about how it was a bad show.

I'm on Mac and a long time Transmission user.  6 months to a year ago I switched to Qbittorent and could be happier in terms of UI and performance.  Haven't looked back.

Deluge is really lightweight and does a good job with 1k+ torrents running. I personally use rtorrent, it's Linux only and command line interface only. But it can handle any amount of torrents running. Currently I have 6k+

you think the torrent is your ally?  you and I merely adopted the torrent.  ph92 was born in it.  molded by it.

Basically... Limewire was really shitty and I wanted a good alternative. That's actually when I found the SHNfam DC++, which lead me to here.

Let's just say the grand opening of Apollo (RIP) was reallllly good to me, DL'd over a TB of music that got transferred to Orpheus almost seamlessly.

You're entitled to your opinion but I'm going to laugh at it.
