Does downloading Windows updates from Microsoft's servers and waiting too long really annoy you? It might not be with the arrival of Windows 10. Microsoft seems to make a major change in Windows 10 to the way it delivers updates for the software.
 
The leaked version of Windows 10 build 10036 (the current version is build 9926) allows you to grab OS updates from Microsoft as well as other computers, whether they're on your local network or on the Internet.
 
Yeah, it's a Peer-to-Peer (P2P) technology Microsoft is going to use in order to deliver both app and operating system updates.
 
 

Peer-to-Peer, or P2P Technology is usually associated with file sharing services like BitTorrent to download illicit copies of movies and albums, and of course, those endless Linux ISOs you've been downloading.
 
However, Redmond is embracing the technology as an efficient means to deliver software updates to its users around the globe.

Oh I can't wait to see the mess this will cause.

I don't like the way that this sounds.

File-sharing has always been both a blessing and a risk. There are always going to be pros and cons. Looking forward to how Windows play this out, though.
