    Which torrent client do you use the most ?

    I have used almost all the torrent clients available for Linux & I finally settled with Deluge.
    Which torrent client do you use the most & why ?

    Transmission - lightweight; does what it needs to do.

    I tried Transmission a long time back. The problem that I faced was Transmission just refused to start downloading those torrent which had a bad health.
    By bad health I mean low seeders/peers. Transmission just refused to connect to the seeders/peers.
    Qbittorrent & Deluge both successfully downloaded the same torrent.

    Transmission on Ubuntu installs, Ktorrent on Kubuntu. Both get the job done.

    I recently switched to Qbittorrent. I wanted so badly to use Ktorrent, but it has some serious stalling issues. I haven't been able to figure out how to stop them... But Qbittorrent works great, so I may just stick with it.

    @everyone who replied

    I am really curious. What is your opinion about Vuze ? Have you used it ? Did you like it ?

    Edit: Just Googled about Vuze and found that its not open source,

    Unlike say qBittorrent, Vuze is not open source software. It comes in a freemium version, but that contains adverts.

    No way I am going to use Vuze.

    Besides, it is bloated and resource demanding and it has ads (but I tested it out long time ago with Ubuntu 10.10 or something like that)
