    unfortunately.

    also, i heard that they got bought out by the original torrent guy, who also sold out and had a lot of bloated shit...

    I've also heard he was planning a uTorrent for macs :dunno:

    Either way, it seems like transmission is the most reccomended Program. I use Azureus because OiNK isn't supported by Transmission. I don't think Azureus is too bad, and I've been using it this entire time so I've gotten used to how it all works and the GUI.

    apparently the next release of Transmission will be compatible with oink.

    I have stopped pretty much using torrents until I can get a better client

    Supposedly they are working on porting uTorrent for linux and OSX. For now, I use Azureus (grudgingly) on my mac (as it's OiNK compatible). One thing I did do, was I set up the latest beta of uTorrent on my desktop PC, and set up their WebUI feature. Now I can access uTorrent on my PC remotely through the internets on my MBP. I can start, stop, and add torrents remotely. It's pretty badass. I hardly ever use Azureus anymore because I can transfer torrents over the network once they're downloaded. Here's a screen cap to show what I'm talkin' about

    If you dont seed a TON, try BitRocket. Very lite like uTorrent but it works with OiNK. It's still in beta though and has some issues. It kept crashing everytime I tried to seed a ton of torrents. If they can fix some bugs, I would be all over it.

    Edit: NM, found it on OiNK. Looks like this will be a fun one to play around with :hs:

    Well I downloaded and installed crossover. Anyone know if there's any way to run an app w/o installing it? I have a folder containing Unreal Tournament, but not the install disk. Transfering the folder between the PC's works fine, but I can't figure out how to set this up on Crossover. Any thoughts?
