"Transmission is the default bit torrent client in
Ubuntu for some time now. But I must admit, I always felt it to be
inferior in front of alternatives like Deluge, which apparently is
my favorite bit torrent app for Ubuntu Gnome. But Transmission is a
favorite for many and the release of Transmission 2.0 with a lot of
improvements and bug fixes is indeed a welcome development.
"What's New in Transmission 2.0?
* Even faster startup.
* Use of IEC standard units (KiB, MiB, GiB) instead of (KB, MB,
* Feels more lightweight and uses fewer resources than other
* Transmission has always been cross platform and has native Mac,
GTK+ and Qt GUI clients."
