For some reason the only client that works best for me is uTorrent. I get good connections to peers and the download speed is good.
I have tried Transmission, Deluge, Vuze, qBitorrent and none of them even come close to the transfer speeds as uTorrent. Maybe I have configured something wrong...

my only problem with qbittorrent was the WebUI is very buggy (doesn't like to render fully). as i use the webui quite a bit that in itself is enough to turn me away from it
qbitorrent works just as fast as utorrent for me, I can always max my bandwidth on a well seeded torrents. it supports all the bittorrent features utorrent does too (utp etc...)

The UK uses Celsius too, you silly Viking
And the United Kingdom location setting provides measurements in Metric: https://dl.dropbox.c...tricsetting.png
I didn't know that the network molestation was a uTorrent thing... I might have to try alternatives because I have noticed that.

Im probably the only one still using eMule and kad lol
Nope, you are NOT alone.
And you can't forget good old Direct Connect (client: DC++).

qTorrent is a great alternative if uTorrent starts developing bugs that affects your usage in the current builds. I tend to find myself switching from uTorrent to qTorrent / visa-versa every 3-6 months (mostly due to web interface or CPU usage issues).

Yes, i am looking for alternatives as well, but i do like utorrent (when it works) anyway, i was banned at forum.torrent.com for posting a question in 2 relevant threads; i think they didnt like the question;
my question was;
what is the most recent stable utorrent build that respects the upload limit?
i know 3.1 worked for me; but i didnt want to deinstall/install 20 different builds between 3.1 and 3.3.1 to figure it out. i was hoping maybe someone did this already and could give the answer straight off.

2.2.1 seems to be the best, at least IMHO. Last of the versions that went to complete garbage.
thanks for your reply.
yes, i like that one as well, but i noticed with that 2.2 the DHT doesnt seem to work as well than it does with these 3.0 builds;
and DHT is where i find most peers when looking up older torrents.
smaller memory footprint with less garbage.
and compared to what i see in your signatures; you gentlemen have spacestations, and i have an amstrad 386sx25mhz

On Windows I prefer Deluge
OS X and *nix, Transmission
