Magnet links are used in a couple Gnutella-based clients to more easily find files on that network. Lately Whenever I see a release that I think could benefit from a little bandwidth saving I download the file, slap it into my Shared directory and post the magnet links to relevant loctations. If many people were to use the P2P clients to download the file instead of the main servers it would decrease the bandwidth usage for main host and increases the exposure of the file. In theory the people who download it from me would share it as well as the people that download it from them and so forth. It's a good theory, even if I can't explain it well.
