I have been using a Mac for the last few years, and really pleased with the performance of ABC BT.  However, my Mac has gotten old, and I just replaced it with a PC.  I'm looking for suggestions for a good bittorrent client for Windows.

utorrent is far and away the best client imo. Vuze is also pretty decent if you dont like the ui of utorrent though.

Just make sure you don't get the newer utorrent versions though as they are ad laden and bloated w/ crap like in built media players etc...

IIRC anything before 3.2.2 is fine

Utorrent elitists usually recommend anything from 1.6.X to 1.8.X

I've moved to one of the newer clients though (3.1.3) for the utorrent remote feature

If you see the cops - LEAVE.

If the cops are coming - Don't be there.
If you show up and the cops are already there - DISAPPEAR.
Anyplace the cops are and you aren't, is a good day

:yes:

I use this on openSuse. Decent client but utorrent still wins it for me though (the older versions anyway)
