Being able to use the Internet and run torrents are pretty basic requirements...any Linux distribution can do those things.

I think Ubuntu works pretty good, but there are many others worth trying. Most Linux distros are free to use and distribute, so it costs you nothing to try them. Try these places to help you choose.
