cgminer is pretty popular, it's the my personal favorite out of all the ones I've used.

Cgminer is the one to choose when looking for military grade functionality.
BitMinter's java-based client OTOH is the one to pick when in need of "military grade" ease of use Tongue

CGMiner has been the best I have used so far.  It is command line but still pretty easy to get setup.  If you don't like the command line miners GUI miner was extremely easy to setup but not as effective as CGminer.  I have not tried Bit Minter yet, though I have been hearing a lot of good things about it.  I may have to give it a shot.

I'm pretty fond of Phoenix 2. Has an editable config file, now, and merges workload. Set up the config, then just run the program - runs quietly in the background.

Don't mix your coins someone said isn't legal

I have tried the Diablominer but it is a little to complicated for a total noob like me, I am currently using GUIminer it pretty much does everything for you . I am not sure if it is me or the miner but I can only seem to get it to load deepbit.net so far lol. most likely it is just me.

Assuming you are GPU mining then I would use Phoenix if using linux and CGminer if using windows.

Oh god, that one's killing me.

Couldn't suppress my laughing either when someone else introduced himself aswell as "Crypto-Hobbyist" in the introduction thread.  Grin

I cast my vote for BitMinter. I've been using it for months and I it's really simple to set up and use.

I don't get it, why would you need visual studio to mine?

On Linux you might issue the following one-liner:
wget https://github.com/ckolivas/cgminer/zipball/master && unzip master && cd ckolivas-cgminer* &&  cp ../adl_includes/adl_* ADL_SDK/ && ./autogen.sh && CFLAGS="-O2 -Wall -march=native" ./configure && sleep 4 && make && cp cgminer /opt/bcm/cgminer && cp *.cl /opt/bcm/cgminer && cd .. && rm -r ckolivas-cgminer* && rm master
It's all explained in the README.

On Windows, do yourself a favor and just download the already compiled version.

The windows binary of cgminer is a easy way to start with.
