Lindows Delivers Software via P2P

Lindows offers software for free over P2P: I wondered when this was going to happen for the first time.

Robertson said would spend more than $100,000 in bandwidth charges to deliver software used to create installation CDs for LindowsOS.

“By allowing people to download LindowsLive from P2P networks instead of from our servers, we hope to reduce those costs,” Robertson said. “At the same time, we’ll be exposing millions of users on file-sharing networks to LindowsOS, all at a minimal cost.
