    uTorrent (they've been involved in some shady stuff in the past, also it's infested with ads [yes, I know about that utorrent ad removal website, but not everyone does])

    This thread mixes up free software that's also free of price (free as in both speech and beer) and legitimate freeware (free as in beer only.)

    Every open source software also can be treated as freeware, but not every freeware can be treated as open source software. This is a thread about freeware and therefore it can includes both.
    Beside that get along with the fact that everyone expect you GNU evangelist calls it open source and not freeware ;)

    Obviously this thread is about free for use (free for the end user to use). Most users don't give a shit about whether or not the software is open source or not as long as it work. And GNU is really a flawed idea, it puts philosophy over practicality and still runs into the occasional problem.

    True. I forgot to add it earlier and I saw your post so I thought i'd give it another vote. (the more votes, the higher it is in the list)

    qBittorrent should also be on the list, it's a much better client than ╬╝Torrent. I also give a +1 to 7-Zip and Discord.

    Also, yay, 100th post.

    I had to use that for when explorer.exe kept crashing every minute, disrupting my file transfers. Great tool, though it's a little confusing.
