Microsoft's Windows 10 Torrent-U-Like updates GULP DOWN your precious bandwidth

Yep, it'll certainly be interesting in Australasia, where the vast majority of connections are still data capped. Usually with $2/GB for bandwidth beyond that.

Microsoft really doesn't understand that not everywhere is permanently online yet.

Still, the p2p distribution could be good for small businesses, that tend to have half a dozen machines in a workgroup. Only one would need to physically download each update.
