It looks like Windows 10 will be shifting the way Windows Updates are pushed out to users, with The Verge noticing that the latest leaked version of Microsoft's new operating system is letting you get updates through peer-to-peer means.

A peer-to-peer network for Windows Updates is a strange beast, but it'll make the update process faster, as well as saving data if you're on a multi-PC household like most are these days. This means you can download the updates onto a single PC and then update the others over your network, peer-to-peer style.

 

We don't know if this feature will make it into the final version of Windows 10, so let's all hope Microsoft doesn't cut it out from here.
