Everyone has their favorites; nothing wrong with that.  Mine is Vuze;
a bit of a memory pig, but very controllable, and the uPnP support
works very well behind a suitable NAT-ing router (typical home setup
with only one external IP address).  I hear it can be made to work
on Solaris; so far, I haven't gotten it working on my SPARC snv_97 SXCE,
but I haven't spent much time on it, either (a bunch of Java errors;
I suppose something must be missing, but it doesn't leap out of the
backtrace and bite me in the eyeball).  Apparently it's rather more
difficult to get working on x86 (requires Eclipse to build all the bits,
and Eclipse in turn isn't pre-built for x86 apparently).  But my only
x86 is in VirtualBox on a Mac (where I run Vuze natively anyway), so
while I could play with it there, I'd hardly _use_ it there much.
