    Lately, Bit Rocket has been giving me problems and I don't feel like reinstalling it. I'm trying out Transmission right now, and I'm not too fond of it. I've used LimeWire, and I refuse to go back. Azureus, too complicated and too many features I don't need. Anything else?

    Vuze (formerly Azureus) isn't that complicated. The question is (since you've used it before) do you use the Vuze look or the Classic look?

    Classic is way better IMHO.

    If you've already setup your router to do port forwarding all you gotta do is adjust the port # in Vuze and you'll be good to go.

    Why did they change the name to Vuze? I liked Azureus much better.

    And I use transmission most of the time. It is so easy to use and I seem to get better speeds out of transmission.

    It was fairly recently if I'm not mistaken. I like the name Azureus too, I mean it took me a while to spell it properly but now I got it down to a science. :D

    EDIT: June 16th was the official name change.

    I've never had a problem with Tomato Torrent. Works like a charm.

    Just curious, but how can you not like Transmission?

    It's unobtrusive and does its job well.

    It's too simple for me. BitRocket was just right for me (screenshot)
