Thinking of switching to all Linux-type OSs soon.

What are my options for a Vuze replacement? Recommendations?

EDIT - Just found that Vuze has a linux variant - any others that folks are using?

I like qBitorrent, looks a bit like uTorrent, is light and does the things I want.

You could try Ubuntu without having to install it, just run it from a disc or stick. If you feel comfortable about it you can also make a dual-boot (install Linux besides your current system)

Vuze and BitTorrent, but I like to keep things simple and use the old fashioned BitTorrent client. Can run single torrent from the command line, or multiple torrents with the gui.
