With all the FOSS BT clients available, it seems BitTorrent, Inc. is shooting itself in the foot. If they had the kind of dominance Microsoft has, they might be able to get away with this (only by the skin of their neck), but most users will likely switch to something else, with only a small minority putting up with these ads.

It’s kind of moot. It’s not like there have been giant leaps and bounds with changes in the bittorrent protocol. A lot of people still use uTorrent 2.2.1 or 2.0.4. Less bloated versions that still work fine. No real need for 3.x.

Companies upgrading their software for the sake of upgrading their software usually doesn’t end well.
