I have been using uTorrent for torrents in Ubuntu but for some reason I didn’t like running it through Wine. There were just some features I missed. After some searching around I came across Deluge. Deluge is free and multi-platform meaning you Windows and Mac users can give it a try too. It is rich in almost all the features uTorrent has but is slightly slower. Till I find something better, Deluge is my new favorite BitTorrent program in Linux. Utorrent is far supperior for Windows users.
