oh, ok then.

I can totally see it, if ms were to release such a thing it would probably blocked all non-signed software, DRM encode your videos and music, etc.

This is total vaporware scare tactic by M&#036;. They will never release this. If they do - two things will happen:

1. they lock it tightly with DRM - and no one will use it
2. they will not use DRM and people will use it to download illegal stuff - and RIAA and MPAA lawsuit rampages might indirectly cause them bad PR or even financial losses.
3. Tinfoil Hat Theory: they will bundle spyware with it which will track illegal downloads and quietly report it to RIAA and MPAA and alot of people will get screwed over.

Either way - who would even want to use it?

The efficiency is also a total BS. This thing is not implemented yet in any meaningful way. They only did some simulations for the paper, but nothing concrete. I will believe this if I see a real benchmark done by an impartial 3rd party - which is of course impossible because this thing only exists on paper now.

Ya have to imagine they would create p2p stuff for a network administrator. Like throwing updates on 2000+ computers distributed file sharing making installing their products en masse alot easier. I doubt it will ever be made publically available.

i think active directory does just that, well something similar. You can install "updates" to a bunch of clients in your network, dunno the specifics, never really bothered to do some reading.

Yeah but 2 things.

1) MS never really propagated that feature of their software.

2) While I don't know the spicifics, I think that there would be a major difference between the two be it ons is just an updating program or that the newer will be for the longhorn systems.
