Notes

I decided to download the Pricelessware 2006 CD. The CD is 637mb of some of the best freeware on this planet. I found that my current BitTorrent client wouldn't work with this particular torrent seed, so I went out and got the one that they recommended. The µTorrent client is only a 115k downloaded and it didn't require an install. I had it running in seconds with no fuss. After making sure it handled my BitTorrent downloads by default, I started the download. I was very impressed by the speed and by how little of my system resources it used. It has all the features I need and I can only recommend it.

 

Update: For those of you who try out this program, or already have a torrent client, SarahInTampa has found a great place to download cool legal torrents. See her blog about it here.

µTorrent is an efficient and feature rich BitTorrent client for Windows sporting a very small footprint. It was designed to use as little cpu, memory and space as possible while offering all the functionality expected from advanced clients.

 

With BitTorrent, you can download files faster and contribute by sharing files and bandwidth.
