Vuze (formerly Azureus) is a free BitTorrent client used to transfer files via the BitTorrent protocol. Vuze is written in Java, and uses the Azureus Engine. In addition to bittorrenting, Vuze allows users to view, publish and share original DVD and HD quality video content. Content is presented through channels and categories containing TV shows, music videos, movies, video games and others.
With Vuze Plus you can get more out of your downloads with playable DVD burn, antivirus protection, Play Now video streaming, and no ads.

Vuze's development has almost halted and its original developers made a free fork, BiglyBT . It's just like Vuze but without crap like ads and bundled unwanted programs, and it is being actively developed. You won't regret switching - the only thing I miss from Vuze is the cute froggy icon :)
I used to like vuze a lot but these days I tend to avoid it, it changes the search engine settings in your browser, replacing them with French yahoo, introduces some annoying shopping plugin and some more. Each time it takes longer to get rid of the installed malware.
So yes, I am positive disenchanted.
Vuze includes many important features not present in any other bt clients, and it's a very stable and mature software. I think the most handy feature being the quick search (searching within your whole torrent list as you type). Just use Vuze with the classic interface to cut all the crap and you'll be another happy user.
Vuze provides the greatest offer of anonymous software-downloads for free
It is the most powerful BitTorrent client
I renamed it from "Vuze (Azureus)" to "Vuze", because "Vuze" is it's official name. :)
vuze is the adware flavor of malware
Pirate spoofing JAR is the only way to use vuze without sacrificing privacy
