    Arrow Deluge VS Transmission

    Hi,

    I'll start by voting and telling my reasons, you do the same:

    Deluge pros:
    1. A somewhat nice GUI.
    2. Good number of features by default.
    3. Has a good plugins system.

    Deluge cons:
    1. The GUI responds slower because it is written in Python.
    2. Can get clunky and feel bloated at many times.
    3. The handling of the BT protocol isn't developed by the Deluge team, they are using libbittorrent which is written by others thus making them dependent on them.
    4. The pre-compiled package is very large compared to other clients.


    Transmission pros:
    1-Written entirely in C++ which makes it lightning fast.(both the GUI and the core)
    2-Has less resource consumption.
    3-The pre-compiled package is about 330 KB only !

    Transmission cons:
    1-Has a very strange GUI.
    2-Has very few features by default.
    3-The torrent info provided isn't enough and the progress bar isn't readily understood.
    4-No plugins or modular system.

    The winner in my opinion: Deluge

    The GUI and the plugins win me.
    I guess I can live with the slow GUI
    What do you say?
    Freedom is neither exclusive nor unlimited.

    Re: Deluge VS Transmission

    I like Transmission, as the interface is so simple, and all the features I need are included. But Deluge is just as good, it is like Utorrent for Linux.

    Actually, Transmission now DOES have a plugin system.

    Re: Deluge VS Transmission

    I tried downloading the exact same torrent with both, with the same settings, and Deluge was nearly twice as fast for me. It may just have been a fluke, but I haven't touched Transmission since.

    I am a Gnome user, but I use Ktorrent.

    Can Deluge ban individual peers for a torrent, so simply like in KTorrent.

    Re: Deluge VS Transmission

    When I used Windows, I would use utorrent, and now with Linux, I use Deluge.
    And so far, I am liking Deluge just as much as utorrent, must be the GUI.
    I wasn't too fond of the Transmission interface, and for torrents, I like a nice interface. (and also transmission never would start the .torrent, it just sat there...forever...doing nothing for me.)

    I like both as well. I use Deluge on my desktop and Transmission on my laptop. I think Transmission was the right choice for Hardy default, power users can easily switch to Deluge if they want to.
