An avalanche of misinformation

A new torrent every day.

There are some who say that BitTorrent is now the second-most dominant file transfer protocol on the 'net, behind only FTP in acceptance and amount of data moved. BitTorrent is the brainchild of a single hyper-talented geek and is not created or sold for profit or corporate presence. This, of course, pisses off Microsoft to no end, since they missed the boat entirely and have no way to turn this into a typical Redmond money-grab. Their solution to the oversight? A brutal attempt at a clone called "Avalanche" and a serious campaign of disinformation and discredit against the wonder that is BitTorrent.

Sad. Very sad.
