    Why are we talking about "downloading games etc" over torrent here?

    The best by far; if you prefer a piece of bloatware with complicated controls, confusing and that might even slow your PC try Vuze.

    Because some game studios realize that it's cheaper for them and faster for their customers to have a p2p digital distribution than a limited http one? Example of these are games like Eve online and Wow(i think) and other large MMOs.

    Yup, uTorrent. That's the one I use and it's excellent.

    Of course, you use it to only download legal torrents such as Linux ISO's and the like, don't you? Don't discuss pirate software on this forum, as it's against the rules.

    Rubbish. Are you trolling?

    I wonder why people associate torrents with illegal stuff. Granted most people do it, but it isn't just for that purpose (although it aids it a lot). I mostly use it for documentaries (I'm a fan of em).

    And yeah I use utorrent.

    Discussing a torrent program is not illegal. They're legal programs. Sites hosting illegal torrents are a different stories and should not be discussed here (because everyone knows them already).

    Also, utorrent, by far.

    + very easy bandwidth adjustment on a per torrent basis.

    Great stuff.

    uTorrent, all the same features as BitComet without the "Passport" bollocks.

    uTorrent is the best. Trust us.

    I agree, Utorrent is one of the best programs I have used for torrents. Usually grabs as much bandwidth as it can.
