Although I haven't downloaded this program to try it... I'd like to provide my opinion... I stick with vuze classic interface, because of it's many configuration problems... I found in utorrent I had to micromanage the queue of downloaded torrents to insure they reached 1:1 upload/download ratio.

Well,in a head to head test , tixati blows BitSpirit out of the water, no contest. I have tried many bittorrent clients and tixati is the fastest most reliable client I have tried.

Has a reasonably nice interface and is loaded with options, but it's slow downloading compared to uTorrent and it uses a lot of memory. Overall a good program that needs some work to be in comparison to uTorrent. If you want an alternative go with Halite, it's much better.

Have been using BitSpirit since is appeared out from nowhere. Then somehow BitSpirit wen under the radar, I was sure project was dead so I dropped it in favor of uTorrent, but... BitSpirit is BACK. It is better it is faster it will save the world... well perhaps not, but I'm glad I can switch over to my favorite torrent client.

Like description says, it is fast, lightweight and very advanced. Word of caution though, i have run in to trouble when I had two devices on the same subnet with UPNP. It was my fault in setting up one router, it shouldn't have UPNP on. Therefore if BitSpirit status says that Port Forward has failed, check your network it may be YOUR FAULT and not the software.

Cheers :)

@Havokdan:

You can uncheck Ask Toolbar in uTorrent while installing and something has to make money when apps are freeware...

BitSpirit has always been good, reliable and fast for me. A good alternative to ?Torrent since it was purchased by BitTorrent, Inc and has partnerships with many entertainment companies according to their website.

Well, despite this website's lame "Download Now" button which was huge but ironically enough impossible to see amongst the seventeen "Download Now" button ads all over the page, I must say this is some pretty decent software. I'm a Mac guy who has a Mac workstation that he boots into Win 7 for some game dev software and I noticed that there's a huge lack of good Windows shareware out there - yes, there's a LOT of it, but most of it is complete garbage or infested with malware. So anyway, this program is *not* infested with malware (yet) and is pretty decent. My favorite program has always been Transmission, though, so you guys may want to check that out too.

Now that Azureus and uTorrent comes with adware (Ask Toolbar), the bitspirit took theirs, I will stay with him.

I remember using this before I switched to ?Torrent. It's a great torrent client, but ?Torrent seemed a bit better and was, obviously, lighter in resources usage.
However, BitSpirit is starting to look great again considering that in the last few days ?Torrent has started bundling browser toolbars with their program :(
