µTorrent 1.x - old, unsupported version. Not recommended.
Everything I tested, I'm very pleased
I can copy peer list and add peers for my ghostleech needs, no other linux client can do that from what I've tested
What does not
Associate with .torrent and magnet URI
What was not tested
First I tested the last beta of utorrent 2 because I've read a review here, and it worked good. But then I realized that client is banned on most trackers so went back and downloaded 1.8.5. It installs and works perfect for me. Also tested 1.6.1 and that worked fine too.

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:
