How much code does Mainline share with uTorrent


Recommended Posts

Just writing an article and I'm wondering how big the client share of the uTorrent core is. According to https://ezrss.it/stats/all/index.html (so far the best stats on client distribution I could find) uTorrent comes in second place and Mainline is the 4th, first is a client I personally haven't heard of (Xunlei, seems to be huge in China).

If the mainline clients actually used the closed source core of uTorrent, meaining that they are feature identical but just announce under another peerId, it would jump to first place (30.589%).

Any idea how much code they do share? And if the rebranded version called Mainline announces itself as Mainline or uTorrent?
