So now is future you will be able to download Apps and OS updates from Microsoft and PCs on a local network, or a combination of local PCs, internet PCs, and Microsoft’s traditional Windows Update servers.

For this Microsoft  acquired Pando Networks in 2013, the maker of a peer-to-peer file sharing technology that’s similar to BitTorrent.t’s not clear what technology Microsoft is using for its Windows 10 testing, but it’s reasonable to expect it has evolved from the Pando Networks acquisition.
