What do I need to Use BitTorrent?
BitTorrent is opensource, so your options for a BitTorrent Client is not limited to a single choice. This page lists popular client options for Windows users. Check out Bittorrent Clients for Linux or Bittorrent Clients for OS X
Simply choose which BitTorrent Client you want, then install it. Your BitTorrent Client will associate itself with .torrent files and launches them automatically when you open or download them.
There is a whole range of options when it comes to choosing a BitTorrent Client, I would advise you to start with one of the four listed above, but if you want to play with other clients I have started compiling a list of alternates. Which include different language packs and client options for operating systems other than Windows.
After Installing a BitTorrent Client, the next step is to Check out BitTorrent Links for downloads
