I just installed Ubuntu 13.10, Saucy Salamander. I would like to install a different Linux distribution, but all of my download crash. I want to use a torrent instead. What software can I install to download torrents in Ubuntu? I used Utorrent in Windows 8 but I don't think they have that for Ubuntu.

This is what it looks like:

Use Transmission a simple torrent downloader. It's installed by default.
