Absolutely true.

For a GUI, ktorrent scratches my itch. Persists indefinitely -- across 
power failures, reboots, etc.; provides many stats.
 From rpmforge:   ktorrent-2.2.1-1.el5.rf
For a curses solution, I like bittorrent-curses from the 
bittorrent-4.4.0-1.el5.rf package -- also from rpmforge.

But as Spiro pointed out, it's all a matter of personal preference.
