Steam P2P?

Steam P2P eminent?

It seems like this gets at least one mention every month. It’s a bit of relief to see that it still exists! The Steam Community’s voice chat is carried over Steam’s new BitTorrent-based P2P network, and the separation of the binaries that work that little bit of magic (into bin/p2pcore.dll and bin/p2pvoice.dll) strongly suggests that we’ll be seeing more applications of the technology at a later date.

I just hope it doesn't come to the point where people are forced to constantly upload information back to other Steam users, such as pre-loaded games, updates, etc...

Would not be cool for people with an upload & download limit such as myself.

It won't. For obvious reasons as limited bandwidth etc. :)
