Even so, Bitflu seems to be largely unknown, reportedly commanding only 0.000025% of the total BitTorrent traffic. According to one reviewer, this could be due to its non-automated, relatively elaborated install procedure, which could be putting off a "majority of users who can't do anything more complicated than a click-next-until-finish install".
