Publisher's Description

Transmission is a BitTorrent client which features a variety of user interfaces on top of a cross-platform back-end. Transmission is free software licensed under the terms of the GNU General Public License (GNU GPL), with parts under the MIT License. Transmission allows users to quickly download files from multiple peers on the Internet and to upload their own files.[5] By adding torrent files via the user interface, users can create a queue of files to be downloaded and uploaded. Within the file selection menus, users can customize their downloads at the level of individual files.

Windows review:
Just like when I decided to give Deluge a try, I shouldn't have given one to this. It's actually the exact same experience:
slow and cumbersome
hijacked torrent association without an option not to.
no portable version
minimal options
doesn't share enough bandwidth

It is in the beta stages for windows but after the bad taste Deluge for windows left in my mouth I don't know if I'll try this again. UNINSTALLED!

Look under add-ons on their site, the1st link is to an unofficial windows port.
I haven't tried it yet (and I don't have a mac), so I can't say anymore about either.
I'l probably give the port a shot when I get a chance, and if it's better than utorrent, then I'll switch.

When will this software be available for Windows?

I use this under Mint and it kicks the crap out of the mess uTorrent has become in version 3 under Windows. This is a small, fast and efficient piece of software - everything a Torrent client should be.

It is the very antithesis of Fuze.

FIVE stars.

Now at 1.34. Why run uTorrent under Wine when you can use Transmission? Like Deluge, this client gets the job done and done simply and well.
