    They can go whatever size they like especially on Blu Ray, but like I said Windows users are slow movers and have old machines so they'd be upsetting a lot of people.

    They're not going to go Blu-Ray. I don't know the the numbers but I'm sure only a small percentage of computers even have a Blu-Ray drive.

    I glad I am not the only one that thought using P2P could be a security issue.

    However, I did read another article that will allow you to choose windows updates over P2P. Most likely because some isp block or throttle P2P connections.
    Hi there

    P2P is no more security problematical than anything else on the internet -- in fact you could argue that it was actually SAFER than classical distribution methods since in a decent P2P stream nobody from outside has the complete file(s) or even has any idea where the data is being delivered from -- at least not without a lot of work.

    The people who should be given a hard time are those dog in the mud ISP's who still think in 2015 that they can't provide UNLIMITED internet usage (often with totally unreal and TINY data amounts per month). Limited contracts should be BANNED IMO.

    Cheers

    I agree.. fixed monthly usage these days is a crime... but here in the US I doubt it will ever go away. Free enterprise rules here and anything that would interfere with that would not fly. But I think it should be banned.

    Yup, as long as the torrent emanates from MS there is no security risk.
    ISP shaping may be a problem though (I get the impression bandwith at Redmond is a given, just hope they realise elsewhere it can be a major frustration).. particularly with the bunch of updates one gets with a clean install of Win 8 & Office 2013...

    I don't think P2P is always identical with Bittorrent. Some ISPs may be blocking the Bittorrent protocol, but they can't block all P2P in the world. After all, Skype is P2P as well. I've never heard of any ISP blocking Skype. It even works on my phone over 3G or LTE.

    Hi there

    I've never heard of an ISP blocking "Bittorrent" -- Maybe you learn something new every day. I thought Courts were only empowered to block people from accessing SITES not to stop people running APPLICATIONS on their computers.

    What's nest -- Banning VLC because it can be used to watch Pirated movies.

    What some ISP's do is possibly throttle back people whom they think are making an "Unreaonable" Load on the servers -- but what is "Unreasonable" when some people's monthly cap is equivalent to about 5 Mins download of a new 4K super HD movie !!!!.

    Fortunately OUTSIDE the US competition amongst ISP's is good and a lot of FREE or vey small payment UNLIMITED USAGE contracts are on offer.

    Most of these have reasonable download speeds of around 8 - 20 mb/s . The slight catch is you still have to pay for Stupid "Line Rental" - but that's around 25 USD a month -- however who even BOTHERS with fixed lines these days away from a workplace.

    Cheers
