    Question Mark

    I recently heard some arguments for and against upgrading utorrent from
    v 1.6 to 1.6.1, and I'm not sure if I should upgrade or not.
    Can someone explain the advantages\disadvantages of the new version, and what do you think I should do?

    Code:
    >brain\run g33k.bat
    Those people who think they know everything are a great annoyance to those of us who do.

    I think there was a thread about the uTorrent having exploits so hackers can get in. I can't really remember how it goes though.

    Advantages
    - ease of use
    - interface

    Disavantages
    - closed source
    - uTorrent was bought by BitTorrent Inc. and BT Inc. had to cooperate with MPAA and Major Movie Studios because it was threatened with legal action (so uT is practically owned by the aforementioned)

    I loved uT but now I'm seriously thinking of switching to another client.

    Not so fond of Azureus, 'cause they kept the phone-home feature (i.e. Azureus reporting your total UL, total DL and ISP name and info to AZ) hidden for one year. It is fixed now though.

    It's not that difficult to find version 1.5 ( http://www.filehippo.com/download_utorrent/?922 )
    But do you remember why switching to version 1.6 is bad?

    It was something on this forum I read but can't remember why . It was probably because of the open source angle which I prefer .
