As for security flaws, do you think Windows doesn't have any?

Don't download the latest 0-days unless you're on a trusted - this means PRIVATE - tracker. Use protocol encryption. Don't use default ports.
Got it! for the recent torrents and I always felt like this when i tried it in the past.
What is protocol encryption and how do i do it. Does this have to do with the firewall?
And what do you mean by "default ports", how do i change them?

Now, I have used in the past Bitcomet and had a good experience with it.
I did a little search and find out that the most popular software for torrent are
bittorrent and utorrent

i don see much difference between the last two programs but there must be a big difference with the first one (i mean the first one is 5 megs and the last ones are less than 1 meg)
what is the main difference?
Which one would you recommend? and why against the others?
Abandonia is the best!!!:thumbs:
