΅Torrent is owned by BitTorrent, Inc.

BitTorrent, Inc. is partnered by the MPAA.

Watch your backs, guys.

I used to use Azureus, but yesterday I deleted it and switched to Transmission on all three of my computers.

currently using utorrent because it's simple. azureus is the most technical and has the most features/plugins, but it's java based and takes up a bit of memory.

A bit of memory is an understatement.

That's what it uses if you download one thing. More than one thing and it leaks like a mofo, on top of all the memory it's using.

In the past I've used Bitcomet but now I use Utorrent and it's works like a charm.
