Another good software that shoot on the foot, like the old azureus. Trying now Tixati.

Thinking the same thing here, I couldn’t help but notice the added “features” that was introduced to v3.0 which was clearly making it tend more and more to become a bloatware.

I rarely use it though, most of the time seeding Linux distros so it’s always hidden in the background. But I surely feel a bit frustrated whenever I see how the new updates are changing the whole look and sometimes functionality of the application, and now the last thing we need is ad-supported search results! But I won’t judge before I see how it’s gonna be (Maybe their sponsors would be some good independent heavy metal bands ;)!!?)

But still, let me know how things go with Tixati :wink:

It shows me MacOSX & Linux downloads only?! No Win support!?

[QUOTE=headquarter84;2648820]It shows me MacOSX & Linux downloads only?! No Win support!?[/QUOTE] No. It’s a very small deamon tool to be run on Linux and/or embedded network servers and NASes. There is a GUI frontend for windows though, called Transmission Remote.

Frack. Time to look for a new torrent program. I used to use Azureus until it became adware/bloatware. Why can’t people just leave good things alone?

@ Kerry56 - Good job on using the Titanic pic. LOL.

About Tixati, I found it surprisingly easy to use and with lots of features that are present on utorrent, and it has also a version for linux. Right now for me its a good substitute. Link-http://www.tixati.com/

Guys give your thoughts about torrents softwares, lets get down utorrent.

There has been an update to this story. Bit Torrent Inc. is backing down from making the ad torrents mandatory. Now they can be switched off by the user.


#11

why is everybody so cheap and have to resort to ad support to help pay for the funds that go into the application. and the ads just make the app shit anyways

This sounds more like how it should be! “Optional” is good!:cop:
