BitTorrent with Azureus

There is a kick-ass free program called Azureus that is my favorite BitTorrent client. A client implements the BitTorrent protocol and provides additional features such as multiple downloads and a seeding wizard. Azureus was created in Java and is maintained and enhanced by a lively open-source community.

The Azureus wiki is a great source of information about how to set up and optimize Azureus on your computer. Make sure to read the section about good settings for high download speeds. You can also find information about various plug-ins that are available for Azureus, such as SafePeer and RSS Feed Scanner.

Once you have your client set up you can go hunting for Torrents.

PC Magazine also has a good comparison of BitTorrent clients on their website.
