μTorrent is the best software for downloading stuff via torrent, it is very light and fast software. Currently it is only available for Windows and the Mac version is in beta stage.

Ubuntu 9.10 and Fedora 12 users have Transmission installed for them by default, if not then install it by:

sudo apt-get install transmission
(or yum install transmission)

If you are behind a firewall (connect to internet via router) do remember to forward the port which μTorrent or Transmission is going to use, you can check it in the Settings/Preferences section. This would increase the number of available connections for download. But it is not a compulsory step! Also you would need to forward both TCP & UDP ports to the ip of your computer for downloads to work properly.

Transmission is also undoubtedly the best torrent client for Snow Leopard as well. Babyhacker has been using as long as he has had Mac! It automatically forwards the ports for you on snow leopard and is very light on the processors. You can download it from their webpage or by clicking here.

Stay away from Vuze (formerly Azureus)!
