    Xtorrent is a bittorrent client, Acquisition is a P2P client with a very simple bittorrent client built in.

    For small individual files, often Acquisition, but for big files or sets of multiple files, a torrent app is more suited :)

    You have to pay for Acquisition which is a retarded considering most people using it are basically "stealing" music, movies and software.

    How is it "retarded"? DW spend time and effort making great software, doesn't he deserve money if you want to use it?

    Why use Xtorrent Pro, when can use Azereus and
    various Trackers like Piratebay for free ...?
