31
32 <para>
33 <application>Transmission</application> is a cross-platform, open source
34 BitTorrent client. This is useful for downloading large files (such as
35 Linux ISOs) and reduces the need for the distributors to provide server
36 bandwidth.
37 </para>
38
39 <note><para>
40 The download speed of the client defaults to 50 KB/s which is quite slow.
41 It can be raised, but even on a fast internet connection, the highest
42 speeds seen were about 500 KB/s. For those that have internet capabilites
43 faster thanabout 1 MB/s, direct downloads (if available) will be much faster.
