Okay, Someone explain Vuze to me briefly...
is it like iTunes for shows and stuff?
Vuze, as far as I know, is a BitTorrent client. I'm not going to explain how torrent works, but all you need to know is that it is a way of downloading (often illegal) files. However, if you do want to use BitTorrent, then use Transmission, not Vuze.
I prefer the older version Azureus Since its faster, and very basic and like it better than transmission.
I tried Transmission, and all I had was problems.
Vuze works great for me. Best client I've ever used.
Well, here's another dumb one... what kinda stuff do you/people/whomever often download?
This could be quite helpful!!!
I've heard of Bit torrent
and uTorrent, but i've never used either bc i was unsure of it all
I use Vuze, though i strongly dislike the new media/GUI aspect of it. I keep it in 'classic' mode to avoid all that. I her it is criticized for slowing down systems (RAM, CPU hog), so while I can tolerate that you may want to look into some of the other options mentioned above.
.torrent files have really hit the mainstream. they aren't only for hackers/pirates downloading illegal music/movies/video games. many legal programs use torrent methods to distribute install files (reduces strain on a server/host). the modern web-surfer needs one of these tools.
something i have recently been exposed to is the Avant Garde Project. they use torrents as collections of various themed 'albums' of hard to find/out of print/never distributed experimental music projects.
i have only used transmission but it's working very well for me so far
and it has a very clean interface which saves ur screen estate
