www.bittornado.com

It may be a bit old & the GUI lacking (it's undergoing a complete re-write) but it works solidly & is reliable.  The coder behind BitTornado worked with Bram Cohen on the official Bit TOrrent client so he knows what he's doing.

BitTorrent is a P2P technology, but isn't a P2P network. It isn't like "Oh, I'm bored, I use BitTorrent". It is just a file distribution technology. Example: Messenger Plus! is available as a http download. It could be offered also or only as a BitTorrent download. There would then be a torrent file to download over http, which would then connect to Messenger Plus!'s tracker and fid peers for you to download from.

It can be applied anywhere to distribute files, whereas P2P networks such as Gnutella are a massive amount of Gnutella users, all connected together, and sharing their own files. BitTorrent users (if they can be called that), find peers of the torrent that they are using via the tracker, and connect to peers for the data transfer.

My favourite BitTorrent client is G3 Torrent, but I have only tried a few.

I can tell you right now to NOT use bitlord or bitcomet. Go with something decent like Burst!, BitTornado, Shareaza, or uTorrent.

azureus is bad enough to use a slow language like java, but it also hogs quite a bit of memory in my opinion.

Its true, Azurues hogs way to much memory for the simple process that it should do. A bittorrent program is a background proccess, it doesnt require to be graphically decked out. Not to mention that it is coded in the extremely slow language of java. Try uTorrent.

... Reason?

BitComet is OK in my book... some bugs and useless features, but still a good torrent client overall.

BitComet is coded in C++. (y)
