Why would you ever want to access objects on a stranger's machine? If
something was worth distributing, wouldn't Web site/space suit the purpose
just fine? It would be well-indexed too.
How does that contradict the prevalence of Google? I know that Microsoft
work on a bittorrent equivalent, but how many people do you know whose
interests lie in massive downloads? Putting aside the Westernised World,
most people still have (disturbingly) slow Internet connections.
