Its gotta be µTorrent. I did use Azureus before, but as soon as it treid this, i uninstalled Azureus. Its so light on resources (uses 6/7MB of ram max) yet has all the features i need. You can skin to look how you want as well, as the default skin is pretty ugly.
Its so good i dont think i could use anything else ever again ;)

I use Azureus because we have it set-up on a server that we can access with the web interface.

When the µTorrent web interface comes out of closed beta we will probably use that due to the significantly less system resources it uses.

I've been using utorrent for a while since they banned bitcomet everywhere.  It seems to be fine, I don't really use any of the advanced features anyway and it's pretty fast too.

no harm in trying, it just runs from the exe so download and run. then if you dont like it just delete it.

hmm.. i still really like bitcomet.. its seems to straightfoward and simple/clean... but i gave uTorrent a try and it seems to be pretty good.. the color icons showing the status of the torrents are kinda bugging me, but it would be fun to do a sidebyside speed test on the same torrents with the top few torrent clients.. anyone up for it and post their results?!

you can skin it so it doesnt do that, or its an option somewhere.

Is there any evidence that some clients are faster than others, or does it depend mostly on the peers available on the particular torrent?  It would be cool if someone really tested it.
