    I use the standard bittorrent client. I'm not a big fan of it though. Very resource-hungry.

    Another vote for Azureus. I find the ability to download individual files from torrents indispensable.

    tomato

    i've used the official bittorent app, and azureus, but now i've switched to tomato torrent. i love the drag and drop thing you can do to a folder and the torrent gets downloaded there. :)

    @nuggets: i get my torrents from mininova.org. you can try looking at the links there for other torrent sites. :D
