I don't think this is good point when it comes to choose an application for a distribution with a wide user base target.
As I said, I think we should decided for a versatile tool, not for the "basic user tool".
True, but i still believe that proxy support isn't a make or break feature. That's just my opinion though.
One thing I'd suggest if Monsoon allows it: enable UPnP by default, so it just works if you have a UPnP router. Very useful for people with home networks and only one external facing IP address.
That is what's done. The upnp library that Monsoon uses supports nat-pmp aswell, I just have to update the copy that i ship with monsoon.
right, that's what I'm try to do, but need to understand what experienced torrent uses really need
One feature which i use which haven't been mentioned is selective downloading: choosing which files in the torrent should be downloaded. That is quite useful at times. An app which supports that would be nice. Transmission and Monsoon do, but i don't think deluge does. The others i don't know about.
