A replacement for Azureus- BitTyrant.

Post by Espreon » Thu Sep 13, 2007 18:14

BitTyrant is a fork of Azureus that has an average of 70% greater download times than Azureus. BitTyrant's codebase is simply Azureus 2.5's codebase but it was modified. Plus BitTyrant's GUI is the same as Azureus, so I see no reason of not replacing Azureus with BitTyrant.

Sounds like a good one. I would like to try that one out!

I was hoping someone would port over Utorrent or Transmission to Linux. I did see a program called transmission but is nothing like the OSX version.

A good, virtually 1:1 replacement for uTorrent is Deluge. In Windows my favourite torrent client was uTorrent, with my least favourite being Azureus. That meant I had to use the official client, or some half-baked solution with half the features I wanted, until I found Deluge. It's never disappointed me. http://deluge-torrent.org

I installed deluge and downloaded SL PE 1.1. That was the quickest download I have ever had using a torrent.
