    Default Ubuntu or Windows for torrents....??

    Which offers better speeds(even slightly better).....?

    Please do mention your Specific OS(eg. Windows xp pro, Ubuntu 9.10)
    and also your respective torrent clients.........

    Any Ubuntu users using Transmission? How is the speeds and ease of use?
    I heard it works very well with Mac OS..........

    Default Ubuntu for speed!

    I have observed noticeable difference in net speed when using Ubuntu. Transmission is great too. Protip: Use google's DNS servers for better speed. Default DNS servers provided by ISP are unreliable.

    I get constant promised ISP speed on ubuntu. Enjoy!

    Windows XP is faster than Ubuntu when you are looking to use it on torrent, but i can't say anything on security.

    I definitely prefer ubuntu, I noticed interesting results too. I used the two operating systems to upload and download torrent files. Windows 7 speed is good, but Ubuntu is even better, much difference in speed, Ubuntu uses the entire bandwidth available, however windows 7 does not, the speed is much more constant and stable in Ubuntu. In windows 7 is not, and that's the main reason that I do not use Windows 7 for torrenting any more.

    I havent tried torrenting with Ubuntu, I only torrent Android and Windows. Torrenting is a better experience with Windows. Majority of torrent downloading apps in Android are very slow.
