As Dave Winer points out, Blogtorrent looks pretty cool and could make things quite a bit easier. It'd be great to be able to do the LQ Podcast (next podcast should hopefully be online later today) via Blog Torrent. The problem? It only runs on Windows. Have to love this line from the Blogtorrent site though:
We only have a Windows version of the Blogtorrent client (help fix that!) so for now we just detect when people aren't using Windows browsers, and don't show them the easy download links. For Mac users, we give them instructions on how to download and install the OS X Bittorrent client. And for non-Mac, non-Windows users, we assume that since they're running some weird OS, they can probably figure Bittorrent out themselves.
Although I have been using Linux on my main desktop (well, on almost all my machines really), it's lines like the above that make me remember just how much work we have ahead of us. Should prove to be a fun journey though. The revolution may not be televised, but it will be blogged ;)
