BitTorrent is a P2P method where a central 'tracker' keeps track of who is
downloading and sharing specific files.
When using BitTorrent to download OpenOffice.org, your computer automatically uses
spare bandwidth to help share the file with others, and this means that you don't
have to put up with slower downloads during peak download times (such as just after a
release), because the more people downloading, the more people sharing.
Also, your download is automatically checked for integrity to make sure that it is
identical to the official version.
To use BitTorrent technology, you must have a BitTorrent "client" installed.
