What exactly does the original Bitcoin client do? I noticed that the Bitcoin website says that a person can support the network simply by running the original client? How is this?

Even if you use Bitcoin through Tor, the way transactions are handled by the network makes anonymity difficult to achieve. Do not expect your transactions to be anonymous unless you really know what you're doing.
