A penguin walks into a bar...
I converted to Ubuntu, installing jaunty this past weekend (with a Win 7 partition for my gaming). I'm really pretty bad with Linux, since I only used it a bit on some seedboxes, but it is fun to learn.
My question is which bt client should I use? I've tried Transmission, which I used on my Mac, but I find speeds jump around a bit, although they have gone higher than uTorrent (and much higher than my purported connection). uTorrent through wine is more stable, but I'm trying to go native, if possible. The one thing uTorrent has in its favor is its popularity (and for now, the skip hash check as I test clients).
I've installed Deluge, but haven't played around with it much. It seems to have fewer features.
I used to run rTorrent on my seedbox (and Mac at one time) but I haven't gotten my config file straightened out properly yet (always my biggest issue), although I spent all of 5 minutes on that.
Before I go further and do awfully unscientific tests, I ask all Ubuntu users to advise me on which client to use.
My main concern is stable speed to keep up in fast swarms. I also prefer the native linux clients looks and need a good webui. Resources should not be a problem for my i7 920 & 6GB Corsair, so that's a nonissue. I get 4MB/s down and 2-4MB/s up, with occasionally much higher spikes.
