I use Azureus and it fantastic!

I want to use SpeedScheduler but I can't seem to get it working... I have installed it and I get an XML file, but other then that nothing....

If you can get it working let me know =)

Azereus is Java based. It slows down your CPU and will cause your CPU to work harder.

Transmission is very lightweight, simple, and gets the job done.

It's lightweight, simple and offers enough control for the eh, average downloader .
I'd only use Azureus if you want extreme customizability.

Btw, congratz on the new mbp.
