    I'm thinking of getting the program that allows me to run Windows while I am on Leopard.

    The only reason is so I can use uTorrent to download some bittorrent files.

    Would that be worth it, or would that be crazy? Also, if I was to do that, could I just drag the files from the windows to my desktop on apple?

    ^ None of those programs hold a candle to µTorrent :^( To the OP, yeah, you could use Fusion or Parallels or Crossover, but the simplest alternative would be to try a native OS X client. Most people use either Azureus or Transmission. Many people do use emulation or virtualization to run µTorrent, but it isn't really worth the trouble.

    If you really must get virtualization software, please make it VMware Fusion. It supports drag and drop of files between the two operating systems.
