with 38 comments

Two years ago I wrote an article about the best 5 torrent clients for linux. In the open-source world, two years means a lot of time. So, here it is an updated and enlarged list :

GUI torrent clients:

1)  Deluge

Deluge is a full-featured BitTorrent client written in python, for Linux, OS X, Unix and Windows. It uses  libtorrent in it’s backend and features multiple user-interfaces including: GTK+, web and console. It has been designed using the client server model with a daemon process that handles all the bittorrent activity. The Deluge daemon is able to run on headless machines with the user-interfaces being able to connect remotely from any platform.
