Carbonize comment above seems to imply that eMule functionality is built-in BitComet, when in fact it resides in a separated plugin... IMHO, BitComet provides for a comprehensive and rather good downloading solution (encompassing regular, media and torrent downloads).

I used BitComet as the first torrent client back in the ol days.
Then uTorrent arrived, and I stuck with it for the low resource usage.

@billon
Have you checked the download links for BitComet version 1.44?
I get "404 Not Found" both for the archive and the installer.
