Default Azureus is no more

Back in 2007 the team that developed the popular Java Bittorrent client Azureus created the content distribution plattform Vuze and integrated it into Azureus. Today, after more than a year, to consolidate their position and start using the Vuze brand name exclusive. One could say that Azureus has become Vuze which tries to be more than just a Bittorrent download client.
Vuze adds a social component to it among other things. Users can for instance add friends to the client and prioritize this traffic and share torrents with their friends easily. A torrent search engine is included as well in the client with the option to add other search engines that are not listed yet.
The old user base that was happy with just the Bittorrent client is at least partially unhappy with the decision. Many users will continue using the old Azureus client or start using another client like uTorrent.

While the old interface of Azureus is still available in Vuze users will have no way of downloading the Bittorrent client without the additions implemented by Vuze.

I stopped using Azureus when they started working on that Vuze crap. I use uTorrent now.
