µTorrent 1.x - old, unsupported version. Not recommended.
downloading. tray icon. close to tray. stays even in wine low on resources. The search for torrents on the web thing opens firefox. Localization. DHT. The download status bar.
What does not
upnp. minimize to tray (yes close to tray does work, but when you minimize to tray an empty window is left. not a big thing, but minimize is default. Simply set it to close to tray in the settings.) The big "file-availability" status bar displays crap. The torrent list flickers on update. Opening a file from a torrent from out of μtorrent from the file list.
What was not tested
Setting it as the default torrent application. I've configured it to automatically download any torrent placed upon my desktop.
great app. Extreme low on resources. some minor problems that no-one cares about.

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:
