I hated Azerus when I tried it. It's really not what I want. I'm looking for a torrent client like uTorrent, something that's just used for torrents and not for a million other things like Azerus apparently was.

What are my options?

Take a look at Transmission. It's nice and simple to use, and only focuses on torrents.

Transmission is being banned on many trackers for reporting data inaccurately. You may want to go to the forums of whatever trackers you use and ask there.

I've been using Transmission and haven't had any issues with getting/seeding files. Not sure how widespread the banning problem really is.

Incorrect ryanwarsaw.

The newest version of Transmission fixed that and it is working flawlessly.

Feel free to use it to your hearts content. I've had no problems.

The fact that the newest version of transmission is working properly doesn't necessarily mean that all trackers have unbanned it.
