I personally like UTorrent on Windows and KTorrent on Linux.

While no experts on this, anything that gets the data down faster while maximizing my pipes efficiency.

I also like Torrenting than  any of the sudo-apt get method of downloading software or the zip unzip,tar untar, install/make file

Torrenting is a simpler way of sharing applications but sadly not used much by the stats computing community to share downloads.

Also I think any dashboard or visualization should be sorted (but not alphabetically but numerically/categorically)

SORT THE DASHBOARD —-KEEP IT SORTED

So I am partially recreating after sorting the data viz from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comparison_of_BitTorrent_clients
