Acer Revo - torrentflux-b4rt or Deluge with web ui?
I've bought an Acer Aspire Revo nettop, which I intend to use as an HTPC to replace my aging (and loud and power hungry) Shuttle.
I intend to install Karmic 9.10 on it, along with XBMC 9.11 (Camelot). I'm wondering which torrent client to install.
At present I use torrentflux-b4rt, but something tells me it's a bit overkill for the amount of torrenting I do (I could be wrong). Having to have a web server + sqllite etc installed, just for that one app, seems to be a bit resource-heavy when it doesn't do anything else webserver-related.
So I was thinking instead of moving to Deluge, along with its web UI. The Ajax-ified skin is beautiful, and I think it has most of the features of b4rt (except user accounts). It also means no overhead of apache/lighttpd and a database server.
Does this make sense do you think? I intend to leave the machine running 24/7, and AFAIK the Deluge daemon can be run on startup, along with the web UI, which can be accessed easily enough from the outside world via dynamic DNS.
Any thoughts would be appreciated, not to mention people's experiences torrenting on the Revo.
