Have you ever used the BitTorrent client that’s been included in Ubuntu? It’s almost useless. The BitTorrent situation is being fixed with the inclusion of Transmission in Ubuntu 8.04.
Transmission has been built from the ground up to be a lightweight, yet powerful BitTorrent client. Its simple, intuitive interface is designed to integrate tightly with whatever computing environment you choose to use. Transmission strikes a balance between providing useful functionality without feature bloat. Furthermore, it is free for anyone to use or modify.
