    Everything is the same as on Windows, Linux and whatever else you can install torrent clients on!

    You can use any bittorent client that runs on OSX, all open source clients should be compiled for intel macs by now. Technically any java client should run under OSX too because java is non-platform specific.

    I use Azureus, works fine and it's a lot prettier than the Windows version :)

    Tomato Torrent is ok for a simple no-nonsense client uses least RAM

    Bits on Wheels is probably the best

    Azuerus is the one which uses the most RAM

    Personally i'd use either Azureus or Transmission depending on your needs from a client (both are Universal) :)
