Make a uTorrent for Linux
A uTorrent for Linux would be very nice.
We’ve now released a headless Linux client!
We’re still working on the GUI, but if you’re looking for a version to run on your server, check out http://www.utorrent.com/downloads/linux
So what's the current status on the linux client? What is the ETA for a "stable" release?

I would love to have a native uTorrent for linux.
Please leave the option to pick headless or gui front end. I can picture someone wanting to drive it via the web.
you know...Deluge and else are not worse :P
I've been a huge supporter of uTorrent for windows for years and I'm glad there will be a Linux client now that I've made the jump. Open Source is the way forward.
yes it is so good
What can I say, thank you a huge one, it runs great and waiting for the GTK version impatiently :)

All works great, WebUI does his work! But the only feature I needed, the reason I'm using windows uTorrent under wine still missing! The RSS with favorites manager.
So far everything is looking great... Just one "minor" thing lacking IMHO, that is multi-user support on a single daemon... Will this be coming or will multiple daemons be the permanent solution?
Still waiting for gui, server shit dosent interest me. :D
Didn't test it yet, but sounds very cool.
Thanks for listening to your "costumers" :D
It's near... I fell it... I wish it... I adore it :)
Seriously, good job guys... can't wait to download the version with gui
can you make a windows client control the linux client via ssh tunneling?

@João Rebelo: That's exactly what the headless "server" version does.
I'm very glad to read this!
I'm testing it!
Really nice. uTorrent kicks ass!
Also I just noticed that this does not seem to do RSS yet...
This seems to work :D
I think I shall be running this as a daemon - lets see how stable this puppy is.
Quick question though: how does it handle updates? Cos the last one wouldn't say anything unless you were in the actual gui...

Please also consider to let uTorrent be runned without graphical environment, only running the web interface.
This would be perfect for server environments as NAS's, or normal linux boxes.
