µTorrent 1.x - old, unsupported version. Not recommended.
All basic torrent functionality.
What does not
What was not tested
This installation is running on a VIA EPIA with 256MB memory, running file (nfs/smb) and web (apache 2.2) servers. Wine is running within an Xvnc (tightvnc) session with lwm. Normal use is via uTorrent Web UI. With the uTorrent app window minimised (within the vnc window), active torrents and an active Web UI connection, cpu usage is typically below 10%.

If/When you get this error:
It seems like uTorrent is already running, but not responding. Please close all uTorrent processes and try again.
you could simply kill all the utorrent processes with:
killall -9 uTorrent.exe
Then just open utorrent, not the installer.
You can also open Âµtorrent with '/NOINSTALL' parameter but then you can't change any settings (if I understood right). E.g.:
C:\Program Files\uTorrent\uTorrent.exe" /NOINSTALL
It seems that with the new version of Wine Web UI is supported and the RSS features where tested. This is great news as that elevates utorrent to Platinum status on AppDB. Of course more test results are always welcome as it got platinum on 64 bit ubuntu only so far. See Aaron Poley's 64bit 7.10 submission at:
