    Surprised/Amazed

    Researchers at Microsoft's computer science lab in Cambridge have developed a peer-to-peer filesharing system that they say overcomes the scheduling problems associated with existing distribution protocols such as Bit Torrent.

    Hehe,

    I bet they going to release it, for free, with source code too.

    Because that's what they do, all the time.

    Damn blue-hats.

    if thier gonna release a P2P, as far as they use the same principle of filesharing(no legal craps ) am with them, cuZ only MS can stand in the way of MPAA and RIAA.
