Comment on Transmission

Download speed does depend 99.9% on the seeders/peers connection....that's why a good test uses THE SAME torrent with a LARGE amount of seeds so that that's not a limiting factor. This way differences on speed can't be blamed on the torrent as they're both the same (basic scientific method 101).
Anyway, good test and I can confirm that Transmission starts up a bit more slowly but otherwise has more features.
