I purchased Xtorrent. Acquisition is widely used as well, and aMule, which is slightly less elegant.

transmission is a very good, lightweight bittorrent client

I've also heard that utorrent is coming for mac soon, so look out for that

I've used Acquisition for some time (runs on the Limewire network, among others). I can also highly recommend Transmission...great, simple, easy to set up BitTorrent client, plus it's free.

acquisition - best for p2p with built in search, similar to limewire. very lightweight and very nice. can also download torrents, but i do not use it for that (see below). http://www.acquisitionx.com/

transmission - open source, lightweight, best and only used for torrents. http://www.macupdate.com/info.php/id/19378

The "search" button should be more visible on forums, or someone could put up a huge notice about searching before asking at the top of the page.

Anyway, I hope a uTorrent for the MAC comes out soon since it's a great program.

I think it's right there in the Forum rules, which of course are read by EVERYONE ;-)

At present there are no known virus's on the Mac for OSX, but yes, you COULD download a PC virus and then unknowingly pass it on through a network or in an email. I don't use anti-viral software and so far, touch wood, have not passed anything on. I wouldn't worry about it, but if you have a PC networked to your Mac, it's probably not a bad idea to get some screening in place.

If you're talking about P2P, probably Transmission because it is one of the lightest Bittorrent clients out there.
