What works


What does not

I've had a few crashes.  It's not rock solid.  It usually just reopens and continues, and I don't *THINK* I lost much data!


What was not tested

I have not used it as a bit torrent client.  I'm very happy with Deluge, thank you very much.

Additional Comments

This is a great app, but be warned, if you enable gnutella 1 and edonkey, there are tons of virus servers run by media corporations attempting to ruin your machine. Of course, being on Linux and in Wine, they will ultimately fail!!
