uTorrent: Focusing on Other Operating Systems

Using popular BitTorrent client uTorrent on the Microsoft-developed Windows operating system is no big thing. As a matter of fact, the latest stable version is uTorrent 2.0.2 which you can get here. But we will not focus on Windows – let’s focus on other operating systems.

For example let’s focus on Apple’s Mac OS X. The last time put the spotlight on uTorrent for Mac was when version 0.90 Beta came out – that was back in November 2008. Yeah, I know, a long, long time ago. It is now time to shift focus on the BitTorrent client once more because version 1.0, the first major point release, has been rolled out.


The application features a new UI and all the bells and whistles you can expect to get from a speedy, lightweight BitTorrent client. If you are unhappy with Transmission now that uTorrent has reached version 1.0 would be the right time to give the application a try. Also, you might want to get uTorrent if you just recently switched from Windows to Mac and would like a familiar BitTorrent client. You can get uTorrent 1.0 Beta for Mac here.

Moving on, let’s focus on another operating system – again, not the Microsoft Windows OS. Let’s focus on Linux for example. For a long time there has not been an uTorrent version for Linux. There is no uTorrent for Linux version now either – just in case you got excited and thought one was rolled out. There isn’t one now, but there will be one in the future. The uTorrent team has finally confirmed the fact that they will come up with uTorrent for Linux. They did not provide any further details about when the application would be released; nor did they provide any details about how the application will be. We’ll just have to wait and see.
