Im currently using BootCamp, but its a pain to restart my computer because im only using it to use Utorrent. If I went with parallels could I be using Utorrent via parallels well even though I was working in the mac OS? Also would this affect the speeds of utorrent any way? Thanks

You could, but why not the great latest Transmission beta (http://chucker.mystfans.com/opensource/transmission/Transmission-latest.dmg) (warning: download link) now with selective downloads and prioritising ?

use azureus.
There really isn't anything I can see that is better than the very stable (hasn't had any problems since the day it was released) Transmission beta.

EDIT: OK, even though I have no idea why I/anyone would want that

because it still doesn't have protocol encryption.

I use Transmission, yet I wish it would allow file select. Azureus on the other hand I have tried and experienced terrible speeds. Transmission is what I generally use but I just wish it allowed RSS + File select. I know Azureus has these but the speeds just arn't satisfactory for me.

and just how much effort did it take to set up azureus vs. utorrent? all you need is a couple of forwarded ports and trivial dl/ul speed caps changed and it should work just fine.

What version is this latest one?

0.80 beta, its near the bottom of the page and labelled 'Transmission-latest.dmg', though I thought (and it works, at least in Safari) that I linked to a download...

No problem. Prioritising (those 3 bars next to the file select list) also rocks...

Get Parallels (http://www.parallels.com)only if you need Windows running simultaneously with Mac Os. Otherwise try to search for Mac-based alternatives, this will be more memory-effective.
