    I have switched to qBittorent recently after uTorrent became bloated and full of ads.

    I like the fact that qBittorent is Open Source and has no ads whatsoever

    What is your fav. Torrent client?

    Bittorrent and uTorrent look almost exactly the same with a few color changes.

    qBittorrent is a totally diff. program

    wow, never heard of that before! looks kinda neat from the screenshots

    I might give it a shot

    EDIT: This is a Linux only client or what? I only found this to download:

    ktorrent-4.3.0.tar.bz2

    I use QBit myself. It's a nice little program. I've lost my trust in uTorrent.

    well yes they are all in the sens of doing the job of getting your torrents BUT....

    uTorrent has become a paid service that are trying to just make money by selling their program with snake oil tools, bundling toolbars, etc, it's just horrible

    qBittorent is clean because it is Open Source

    Well, they are trying to address these concerns:

    http://forum.utorrent.com/viewtopic.php?id=123284&p=1

    Personally, I'll stick with qBittorent. My problems with uTorrent were of a different nature and qBittorent never gave me problems of any nature whatsoever.

    No, not ever since its creation in 2005. It's amusing how the project started out because of the desire to be rid of bloatware, and 7 years later has become what it was meant to get rid of.

    like what d00d?

    I never had any problems with uTorrent other than the fact that they spoiled the best torrent clients with all these ads and stuff. I mean they have a freakin' uTorrent Plus for a paid monthly or annual fee that is supposed to scan the torrents for viruses :rolleyes: riiiiiight.... :rolleyes: :eek:

    some people who are ignorant about computers actually fall for this

    Like that "offers" are now "opt-out"? Anyways, I stopped using uTorrent before these so called "offers".

    As for uTorrent Plus, is has other features as well. See: http://www.utorrent.com/utorrent-plus/index/
    Also, their integrated AV is powered by BitDefender (which is a favorite of the testing labs): http://www.utorrent.com/utorrent-plus/features/#antivirus

    I wouldn't buy uTorrent Plus, but I wouldn't classify it as scareware either.

    I see, nothing interesting for me though

    1- AV by Bitdefender, I already have KAV and certainly don't want any conflict with another scanner

    2- being able to convert files to popular devices like iphone, etc, I use DVDSoft Free Video Converter it does that exactly and converts to any format / preset size

    3- Plays more formats than other players, who needs that, MPC-HC FTW plays anything you throw at it

    while these features are nice, certainly not needed as you said

    What's your opinion on the "Remote File Access" feature? Comments? :D

    http://www.utorrent.com/utorrent-plus/features/#remote_access

    "Want to remotely grab your torrent library before you board that long flight?"

    What's your alternative for this? rofl

    (I rarely download torrents so, for this feature, I can't even think about an usage scenario)

    With a few clicks under "Options", this is what you get. And the whole folder of uTorrent is 3.50 MB. Where exactly are the ads and the bloat everyone whines about?
    Anyway, i use 2.2.1 build 25302 which is the last portable
