It's not every day here at CMSWire that we can wholeheartedly recommend torrenting a video. However, the times, they are a changin'.These videos aren't the typical kind that one finds on the torrent sites. Zudeo
, which is building off of the popular Azureus torrent client platform, is offering up a medium for content producers to publish their content at a reduced cost. Zudeo can do this because it allows the bandwidth cost to be spread amongst the downloaders -- who effectively become seeders. More on torrenting from Wikipedia
Until now, most of the content has been made up of high definition videos and trailers. The Drupal kids -- enterprising open source aficionados that they are -- have published a few of their HOWTO videos on Zudeo. This result is a rapid spreading the word on the latest Drupal 5 platform

Bravo, Drupal. And Drupal fans, download and install Zudeo/Azureus and start learning.
