The software maker detailed the new image format Wednesday at the Windows Hardware Engineering Conference here. Windows Media Photo will be supported in Windows Vista and also be made available for Windows XP, Bill Crow, program manager for Windows Media Photo said in a presentation.

There are ways to improve jpeg. Aritmick compresion, wavelets, etc. The real problem is as other said, these technologies are patented, so for free software this is not acceptable. The beaty of jpeg is that there was a team that developed a library for anyone to use. I doub that ms will release code like this. Stick to standards please!!!
