utorrent thru wine would be nice, but i cant get it to work. contradict here claims to get it working, but wine doesnt do much of anything for me except make things look nice then crash. i tried yahoo messenger thru wine, no luck. tried older versions of YM, too. no luck.
i was able to get a 3rd party yahoo clone to work, but it was kinda lame as an app, so wine is really hit or miss.
as far as torrenting goes, i am able to use the bittorrent app from the repository, but it lacks soo many features. as well, being constricted to download only to the loopback filesystem is a pain in the ass. if you only want to download cd's and movies, and then move them out of the loopback system onto the rest of your harddrive it's OK, but if you want to be able to torrent directly to your F partition, youre looking for answers you may not easily find.
so no, i really dont know of any good torrent application for linux, and really, this stands for linux overall. its all pretty slim pickens in the opensource world. like i said, user contradict claims to have utorrent working so it should be possible, but hell if i know how.
here's a thread called, "azureus walkthru", might help more than i can:http://forums.xbox-scene.com/index.php?showtopic=534962
