    I remember reading awhile back that they've stopped developing a mac version. I use Transmission, and it works fine for me.

    Vuse works great for me. A bit on the heavy side though.

    If you're on a Mac go for Transmission. Very Mac-like and simple interface.

    agree, but if utorrent comes out it will be better than tranmission

    Tranmission would be a fine light-weight client if it wasn't banned from so many trackers due to legacy behavior.

    Azureus is good!
    Transmission has way too many problems!
    The data transfer icons in dock freeze!
    Requires restart after an internet failure!

    But all in all, its lighter than azureus and consumes much less memory!

    White uTorrent absolutely hands-down rules for Windows, their devs are absolute buttholes about giving any indication what-so-ever about release schedules. It's been "in development" for ever, but never seems to get any closer, and none of them will give any indication on when it might appear. Basically, don't sit around waiting for it, find an alternative.

    ...or, use a PC purely for uT w/ WebGUI as I do :D

    Honestly, even if µTorrent comes out for OS X, it'll be a horrible Windows interface with a Mac border.

    It'd be crap

    Just get Transmission or Azereus or summin...
