Zero Install is a decentralised installation system. Meta-data about each package is published in a "feed" file. Before downloading a package over the internet, 0launch can check to see if any nearby machines have a copy, and get it from them instead if so. This will normally be much faster. The secure hash from the feed is used to check that the software hasn't been modified.
