This latest update renders it blazing fast. I love this client so much. Dare you to spend a weekend configuring and combating the bloatware of Vuze.

I'm really, really bummed that in order to implement a VPN solution, now I have to leave the streamlined, minimal, intuitive app that was Transmission, and delve back into this unbelievably lame, PC-esque sh*tshow that is Vuze. This program is utterly baffling, with 42000 options nested in 70 diff stacked options screens--truly a PC mentality program that neglects UI ease for functionality. Sure; properly configured, it'll do anything you want...I'm sure. But c'mon, things don't have to be this way: I REALLY HATE programs like this. Worst? When you install this crapper, it tries to trick you into installing a search bar, changing your search page to Yahoo, all sorts of crap. UGH.If you're to truly understand how to use this program properly, you'll need to get a second PhD....figuring it out

These people are sleazy generators of harassing popup ads and their program is ridiculously difficult to uninstall.

Piece of garbage. Started randomly blocking all google servers without warning: impossible to connect to any google server via or any browser, across user accounts, and took nearly an hour for me to figure out what it was.

Why would anyone pay $40 to do what they can already do for free using "Save As...." in Preview in Mac OS X?

I haven't tried this, but I can tell right away by looking at the screenshot that this is going to have a hard time being better than any of the Little Wing Japanese pinball games, which are masterpieces. Try the latest one, Fairy Tower, or maybe Jinni Zeala. Classics, great addictive stuff.

Reactions after reading others' criticism:
1) I don't seem to have any problem quitting Mail.
2) Disk Utility still can't offer progress reading in the progress bar normally, and it is distressing when the progress hangs and one wonders if the application has crashed. I was stuck at "About 1 minute" for around 5 minutes for my 250GB HD (Intel Core Duo iMac).

But, you're patient, and if you get paranoid, note that Disk Utility is still using 1-2% of the CPU: it's not dead.

Then, it's true, Disk Utility tells you it will only repair one out of over 10 "issues".

No blue screen of probs. Just had to be patient with restart (5 min max?)

I don't see why people keep complaining about install issues.

I always just close my browsers on my Intel iMac, then install, and that's it. I don't really ever have any problems afterwards.

I don't bother with uninstall stuff.
