This one was covered to death on Slashdot.  Its a little bit more than 
symlinks.  Its an automated system that scans the file system looking
for identical files, which are replaced by a symlink to a file in a central
location.   I am curious to hear how MSFT have worked around the
many obvious holes in such a scheme.
