The beautiful side of free software.

Or, another title… “If you BitTorrent, please try Azureus”
I’ve recently been tinkering with BitTorrent to pick up some old TV show episodes, handy for when I’m on the road travelling. My first forays into the world weren’t so promising, as the clients and tools were pretty primitive.
Then I came upon Azureus.
This is as full featured, complete, and beautiful an application as I’ve seen anywhere. It’s written in Java, obviously with the SWT toolkit, and is simply striking in its detail and complexity. It even includes a live animated display showing the ‘swarm’ of machines you’re connecting with to do uploads and downloads.
I’ve been using it off and on for the last day or so, and I’m staggeringly impressed with how well it works, and how complete and detailed it is.
If you’re interested in BitTorrent, check out this system.
