Aside, from being made fun of by others who have the more sexy up-to-date Torrent Clients. What are the benefits and drawbacks of staying with the tried and true BitTornado?

Yeah I would definitely upgrade to Bittornado 3.18. It has encryption so it fights certain ISPs attempts to limit your BT activity. uTorrent is rumored to spy on you and report your BT activity to anti-peer to peer organizations and the RIAA. Some trackers have banned uTorrent. A lot of the bands on here and Dime are not bands that allow taping/trading, so they might not be too happy that you are trading their shows via BT; I think that is why Tapecity is banning uTorrent. And Azureus uses a lot of system resources, so it will slow down your PC. But multiple instances of Bittornado will also use a lot of memory and CPU I think.
