    it's still beta, but it looks more streamlined than what I'm currently using (azureus).

    Yes, it definitely looks better than Azureus. Even the folders are from OSX.

    Oh cool! Didn't know Xtorrent was available for download already. It's from the guy who did Acquisition so I hope when I use this I wouldn't be bombarded with nag screens every freakin' second.

    No nag screens (yet; since maybe it's still in Pubic Beta). I'm chucking Tomato to the trash bin. :)

    hi guys! i have a question. when you are downloading your torrents, are you doing it via wireless or via ethernet?

    if you are doing it via wireless, what download speeds do you get on the average? please state your DSL plan speed too. thanks in advance. :)

    You can read up on torrents here. It's quite informative and you'll probably have all your questions answered. If you're new to torrents you can also try out Transmission. It's basic but it gets the job done. Just dowload the torrent file, open it with Transmission and relax. :)
