  [gilir] This is a comment
  [Baldino] We can stay with Transmission
  [ianorlin]Staying with transmission also works and has a similar interface so not such big jump for users.
  [joern-schoenyan]I've discovered fatrat, which is a combination of BitTorrent and a download manager for FF/Chrome (HTTP, FTP, SFTP etc). Could be a VERY good choice!
  [claydoh] I've used qbittorrent for years now. First tried it out in 2011/2012 while running Lubuntu on both an old netbook and an arm soc board I used as an HTPC for a while. It was the only client that didn't slow the system to a crawl and also had extras such as RSS support.
  [tsimonq2] I'm keeping this open for discussion.
