    Qbittorrent has a windows version too. http://www.qbittorrent.org/download.php

    Some people are funny. They spend money they don't have, to buy things they don't need, to impress people they don't even like.

    On Windows I use Deluge (even on Windows I try to use as much open source software as possible). Nice thing about Deluge is that you can also use it on a server and control via a web page.

    Read http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/BitTorr...col_encryption You might change your tune about them not knowing. From the article: Cohen (the creator of bittorrent) stated "The so-called ‘encryption’ of BitTorrent traffic isn’t really encryption, it’s obfuscation. It provides no anonymity whatsoever, and only temporarily evades traffic shaping"

    Use at your own risk.

    transmission-daemon because I use my server to download stuff.

    I use it through both webui and transmission-remote (command line).

    QBitTorrent all the way. No fuss, no silly layouts/options, no hidden extras, no ads, does what you want it to do.

    how is that different from any other popular windows software/browser plugin?
    every single one has one or more of these:
    • let me change your default search provider
    • include free XXX scan
    • let me install this toolbar
    • let me install this browser

    that crap has gotten much worse since i left windows a few years ago, you can't even easily find stand alone installers more most thing anymore
