Why do you guys so fervently recommend this piece of shit? I decided to switch from uTorrent following the Bitcoin miner scandal, and Deluge runs like complete shit.
>switching from the best torrent client (for windows)
qbit is just utorrent 2.2.0 with a few changes and streaming.
uTorrent was popularized back when 4GB RAM and 500GB HDs were considered large. Get with the times gramps.
I don't think anyone recommends Deluge anymore. Maybe it was one of the better alternatives when qBittorrent was still rather bugged out, but qBittorrent seems to be stable now.
I did use Deluge for a little while, but it's way too bloated. It uses as much memory as my Web browser. It also can't prefetch metadata for magnet links, which makes it pretty useless if you download a lot of torrents from Pirate Bay.
How about the ability to connect beyond localhost?
qbitorrent is crossplatform. Meaning it uses libraries that need to be distributed in some way, or linked statically. utorrent only needs to run on windows, it can be built directly for it.
For all we know utorrent is all asm code on the inside, but I'd doubt it.

>Implying closed source software isn't inherently ambiguous and doesn't afford you a lower level of verifiability or certainty
I bet you are curious. I am too. That's why I don't use 4 year old closed source software.
