Does ktorrent have a built in player for multimedia formats or burner for disc images? presumably you'd want to do something with the data you port around?

Maybe Miro, with its build in bittorrent support and media playing abilities is more of a killer app in the one app you can't live without sense.

Well I have VLC or Mplayer
to play any format you can thorow at them. K3B
handles burning but I rarely do that.


Also Miro though good is not ported
well to some unix systems like Solaris
so for distro hoppers like me is
not quite there yet.

you must download a LOT of torrents for this to be your one killer app
