    For all those experienced linux users here, I need your opinion/expertise on what's the best BT client for Linux (Ubuntu to be specific, though i doubt that matters).

    I already have utorrent running on WINE now but I want to know if there are better alternatives out there. I'm mainly interested in something similar to utorrent's lightweight resource capability.

    A while back I had the same choice and went with Torrentflux - haven't regretted it since. rTorrent did have some web interfaces but they were no match against the imho superior Torrentflux. Maybe that has changed since?

    If those are the best, how come you're not using them?
