1.0.9 (Oct 20, 2005)
I would have given Turbo Torrent a rating of 4 because it does the job, but the people behind this software really upset me about something.
The website declares "low CPU usage". Now that may be true that it does not use too much of the processor power, but it takes up so much memory that my computer has shut down a few times when I became careless watching a movie or listening to music. My computer is pretty powerful and it has 1024ram memory! I've studied what software is using what dll, and what programs are running using memory and how much of it. I'm all over my computer in that respect. And Turbo Torrent is pretty rough on my PC.
I have to run this program hidden in the background and I still can't do everything I would like to do, like web design and listen to music cause my computer might shut down. One should not be scarred to run a program, or be frightened to check up on its status. That is really messed up that they try to mislead people like that. There is no reason for that. It is immature and I am ashamed.
I will give it one last shot and install 1.0.9 to see if there is any difference. If there is, I will post it up here with an apology. But as of yet, I feel deceived. I expect a certain type of pride, honesty and quality when it comes to freeware. This is the type of deception one would expect from a major corporation, not the freeware community.
