Rumor sites are reporting that Leopard (MacOS 10.5) may have peer-to-peer sharing abilities in the OS that would allow the system to share with other computers system and application updates. This would be a opt-in feature that would be rewarded by Apple with free songs or other incentives. Benefits would include faster downloads, less bandwidth for Apple and the ability to more easily update computers in an institutional setting without soaking the incoming bandwidth. Sounds great to me.
