I use transmission on my linux machine and utorrent on my windows. Although utorrent is garbage and so is the windows build of transmission, any suggestions?

I use Deluge on my seedbox and uTorrent 2.2.1 on my PC, simply because it doesn't choke when loaded with loads of torrents.

I don't really know what I'd recommend for Windows, to be honest, other than uTorrent 2.2.1. Everything else I've tried just hasn't really been able to handle a large load effectively, with the exception of Tixati, but that one just has a rather bloated interface from the get-go.

qbittorrent is what I've used on Windows for quite a while now. A simple client and a lot better than the new versions of u/bittorrent filled with ads etc.

qbittorrent is the best thing currently on windows. rtorrent is the best overall client for linux as far as I'm aware (RX14 knows more about that than me)

I use a really old version of utorrent, the version right before utorrent became bad.

recently it's started to play up on my macbook though, and i'll need to replace it with something preferably command line based

I had recently been using μTorrent, but then I had eventually ended up switching to qBittorrent.

I use Deluge for Windows. It's really everything I asked for in a torrent client.

Deluge. It's a solid torrent client to be honest.

I used to be strictly BitTorrent for years, though recently I've switched over to uTorrent since it's a little lighter on resources. The ads are kind of annoying, but it's been working great so far.

Speaking of ads, anyone know of an ad-free torrent program?

You might wanna look into qBittorrent. It's pretty much exactly like uTorrent, minus the bloat.

I'm just using an old version of uTorrent. I'm not too familiar with any other programs.

I have uTorrent installed, but I haven't actually loaded it up in some number of months. I download games via Steam, and I stream anime, so I rarely have need for torrenting.

I've started to use aria2c to download torrents, both at home and on my server.

aria2c is fine for downloading, but you might as well use rtorrent tbh if you wanna seed.
