I am really baffled by the consultant suggesting uTorrent for such an elite character. Really, what is the chance of an elite super paranoid libertarian anonymous hacker to be using Evil closed sourced rootkit ridden software? I would understand seeing that scene from Angela's screen, but Elliot? Really?
A simple rule of thumb for screenwriters: ELLIOT USES ONLY OPEN SOURCE SOFTWARE. PERIOD.
The only twist that would salvage this mess is if Elliot hacked uTorrent, got their source code and compiled his own version.
I suspect the choice of client was from one of the other none techie writers who chose it because of the popularity so it was what they are familiar with. Doubt the tech consultant (who has been upgraded to writer now I heard) would if their history is true (industry consultant including for fbi) and because of how accurate in general the rest is; save for the gnome better than kde comment, tried using gnome and forks so many times since '98ish and I can't see why people love it so much, but admittedly it isn't technical thing but preference thing just got me the way it was stated like fact when I don't know any friends or family who prefer gnome and forks over alternatives.
