6ABOUT TRANSMISSION-QT
7
8   Transmission-qt is a GUI for Transmission loosely based on the GTK+ client.
9
10   This is the only Transmission client that can act as its own self-contained
11   session (as the GTK+ and Mac clients do), and can also connect to a remote
12   session (as the web client and transmission-remote terminal client do).
13
14   Use Case 1: If you like to run BitTorrent for awhile from your desktop,
15   then the Mac, GTK+, and Qt clients are a good match.
16
17   Use Case 2: If you like to leave BitTorrent running nonstop on your
18   computer or router, and want to control it from your desktop or
19   from a remote site, then transmission-remote and the web and Qt clients
20   are a good match.
21
22   To use the Qt client as a remote, in the menu go to Edit > Change Session
23
24   The Qt client is also the most likely to wind up running on Windows,
25   though that's not a high priority at the moment...
