Great torrent applications
Torrents are a great way to download large files. BitTorrent is a peer to peer file sharing protocol. The bandwith is spread among peers instead of downloading from one centralized server. Once you join a swarm you send chunks of your file to others while they are receiving data from you. With torrents you can download videos, audio, pictures, applications, image files and more. There are several great torrent applications for Linux which are listed below. If you know of additional torrent clients please let us know in the comments section.
