Publisher's Description

BitTorrent is a protocol for distributing files. It identifies content by URL and is designed to integrate seamlessly with the Web. Its advantage over plain HTTP is that when multiple downloads of the same file happen concurrently, the downloaders upload to each other, making it possible for the file source to support very large numbers of downloaders with only a modest increase in its load.

Transmission's great, but there's no Windows version. This is for Windows.

I think they're rolling out apps for this mainline version (7.1) before they roll them into the stable uTorrent build in 2.2. Might be worth trying out.

"Feature creep" ... I agree.

The license says "Open Source" ... kinda misleading ... the source is available till version 5.

But we all know that this is basically uTorrent with a different default toolbar ?

Regular bit-torrent.. it's standard stuff... KISS, keep it simple stupid. Don't add stuff where it's not needed. Feature creep is all well and good if it doesn't slow down the program, and actually enhances it's usability in some important way.

I really liked azureus before they got bought out (or sold out) and became "vuze", even if it was a bit bloated I liked Azureus's interface.

I rolled back to 6.02 . Vesion 6.03 puts something in the temp folder that previous versions didn't causing endless pop-ups from Online Armor asking if I wanted to continue , no matter how many times I said yes it was there again on program launch ,[ in the temp folder but with a different number] 6.02 doesn't do this.

Guys, you don't get it. This IS uTorrent. Let me repeat it: Bittorrent v6.x = uTorrent. Different name, same application. Same source code.

As for software, it is decent. Though it may have a few problems in unusual environments. And featureset is not very large. If you need small%fast (fast overral work, not the downloading speed) - uTorrent/BitTorrent v6.x is your choice.

Azureus has more features, and is less error-prone (and even if it has errors, you usually can fix it by yourself). But Azureus is also a bit slow (again, i don't mean downloading speed) and consumes a fair chunk of memory.

I like the prog but I don't like it running a program [btdna.exe] and then not terminating it when I shutdown Bittorrent ... it continues to run in memory and I have to use the task manager to terminate it ... takes about 8420 K of memory which isn't much but I don't like they're not giving me the option to terminate it. I haven't compared it one on one with utorrent yet but it seems to work nearly as well on my system and has most of the basic features of utorrent so I had no learning curve switching over. -1 for DNA otherwise I'm comfortable with it. UPDATE: I was able to uninstall DNA in Control Panel -> Add or Remove Programs.

I really like BitTorrent over uTorrent even though they have virtually the same interface.

I can honestly say, that from experience, bittorrent is weird. I like it when it does the things that I want it to do and hate it when in the middle of a download it just drops to .1 kb/s. I might be the only one who experiences this, but I find it rather annoying. I think that the program sucks and if I could go into the negatives on ratings I would for this program.

For me it installed a service called DNA.exe, which is recognised as a virus by AVG Free.
It caused CPU usage of around 10% on a P4 at 3.06GHz.
It was sending too much s*** over the RPC service (which is svchost.exe as a Network Service).

This is unacceptable.

Use Azureus or µTorrent instead.
