Strange. qTorrent works perfect for me on 10.04. Of course, you are
using qTorrent from their own repository, and running version 2.2.8? Or
do you run something older?
What is to be gained from Linux? Choice. Choice of distro. Choice of
running an older one and still getting updates. Choice of clients.
Choice of being able to modify what you run in ways that suit you.
As a note here about qTorrent, I submitted 2 bugs on Friday... and they
were corrected during the week-end and the resulting update from 2.2.7
to 2.2.8 integrating the bug changes happened, in, total, less than 7
days. Do you think you get that from proprietary software? I'd love to
see such an example.
Yes... What I gain from Linux is things being fixed faster, too.
