Azureus -also- for only downloading part of a torrent at a time (if you want)!


Can you tell what's been recommended yet?

you can take a look at mldonkey ... i like its separation of core and GUI, but it didn't give me good bittorrent speeds ... switched back to azureus for bittorrent and still use mldonkey for ed2k.
