uTorrent Destined to Land on Linux Shores Soon

Notice: This post is more than a year old. It may be outdated.

uTorrent, everyone’s favourite torrent client for Windows is apparently coming to Linux – and therefore Ubuntu!

The following was stated on the uTorrent idea which received a large number of votes:

“We’re making good progress on the Linux client. Sit tight and we’ll have a client out soon enough.”

Many users will be happy to be able to enjoy the extra features of uTorrent over Transmission which is a very simple torrent program. I myself don’t see many advantages over using uTorrent over many of the existing torrent apps available on Ubuntu, but I’m sure there are some who do.
