In this short note we briefly review some recent
developments in understanding discrete torsion.
Specifically, we give a short overview of the highlights of
a group of recent papers which give the basic understanding
of discrete torsion. Briefly, those papers observe that
discrete torsion can be completely understood simply as the
choice of action of the orbifold group on the B field. We
summarize the main points of that work.
