    It's a huge resource hog, but it does it's job fairly well.

    Which BitTorrent client? Can you post a link?
  • Moderator Edit: Do not post links to stolen software. People work hard to write this stuff - if you can't afford it, don't use it. Any further infractions will see the emergence of the hammer.

  • Transmission is probably the nicest Bittorrent client on the Mac. Azureus is clunky but if you want to tweak every little detail, then it's the best.

    Is Transmission better than Acquisition? Why?

    I have only tried Acquisition a little, and never for Bittorrent. It was okay for the other stuff. But for an infrequent user, I think the biggest thing is that Acquisition costs money while Transmission doesn't. Transmission:
    Is open source
    Has a very clean, simple user interface, is a good OS X citizen as far as I can tell
    Under active development, new versions often
    Does little thoughtful things like auto-loads torrent files from your Downloads folder if you want it to
    Supports Growl notifications, UL/DL badging in Dock
    Multi-platform (not available for Windows, but who cares )
    I really don't have anything bad to say about it. It's not even version 1.0 yet but works great.

  • Gents - I can only assume that you're using P2P to transfer things like legal audio/video, podcasts, and legal software. Please be careful here as any talk or links to piracy will put me in a cranky mood.
    You won't like me when I'm cranky.
  • I never talked about pirating anything. Just looking for a good P2P client. That's it.

    your welcome
  • Transmission is definitly the way to go:
    - clean Mac interface
    - very robust feature set
    - very CPU/RAM friendly
    - Universal Binary
    - Open Source, totally free
    And here is a tipp for Leopard users:
    Don't forget to EXCLUDE the folder for your incomplete torrent downloads from your Time Machine backup.
    While you are downloading the temporary, incomplete file is likely to change every hour. So for a 1 GB file, Time Machine will create a 1 GB copy every hour, filling up your backup quickly with entirely unnecessary data.
  • BitTyrant, which is based on Azureus.
    Otherwise, Trasmission or Bits on Wheels.
  • I use transmission, and have no need to look for any other program. It's simple, lightweight, and has a great UI.
