Um, BitTorrent; but you are aware that all the options you mentioned are gnutella clients. If I want 1 song I get it off lime wire (or another gnutella client) but if I want something bigger I use bittorrent.

Azureus for bittorrents, for legitimate downloads only, of course.

Please do keep things legal here, for the sake of the forums. That being said, I know most of us get our latest installation ISOs via BitTorrent, as per the GPL.
