What is BitTorrent?

BitTorrent is a p2p system for transferring (typically) large files. Using .torrent files you can download any number of large files including movies, games, operating systems, etc. These .torrent files are available from many websites (see list).

Brian's BitTorrent FAQ and Guide has a much more complete answer to this question.

"BitTorrent is a protocol designed for transferring files. It is peer-to-peer in nature, as users connect to each other directly to send and receive portions of the file. However, there is a central server (called a tracker) which coordinates the action of all such peers."
