However, if the effective calculation of the coins would be a required a large amounts of data, this could prevent botnets. The rainbow tables could be sold on disks or be distributed in every major city (hotspots, wireless lan). Is the sha-2 algorithm too much salted to generate the coins faster?
Creating a Bitcoin client that fully implements the network protocol is extremely difficult. Bitcoin-Qt is the only known safe implementation of a full node. Some other projects attempt to compete, but it is not recommended to use such software for anything serious. (Lightweight clients like Electrum and MultiBit are OK.)

All of the data that Bitcoin hashes is too large and random to use rainbow tables with.
