Id like to start using it but have been hesitant because of potential hackers, viruses, whatever with bittorrent.
Anyone had any problems? Comments? Suggestions?

I've never had any problems with it and i use BitTornado to download the torrents and that's worked great as well

Yeah, thats not a concern. Use Transmission as your client.

you are safer with oink than downloading from random sites....the admins there are extremely strict with what goes on.

The only thing is trying to obtain the ever-elusive oink invite. That's probably yer only concern.

You won't get viruses on OiNK. People don't do that sort of thing because their account is too valuable.

P.S. Use Ubuntu :)
