Microsoft If it is up to Microsoft, the omnipresent JPEG image format will be replaced by Windows Media Photo. 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.

Let me guess if your OS X user or Linux user need to upgrade to Windows... and if u have XP or below you need to upgrade as well... what is wrong with JPG? We really do not need another image format.

No, because on the Get Ready For Vista page, you cannot Download and run the .msi

Using their own screwed up formats, Microsoft has, by default, lost OS X and Linux users from upgrading to Vista. There is simply no way to check if their machines can run it.

As for a replacement for jpg ? Choke my chicken Microsoft, why should I buy in to your shitty format, when there is a STANDARD one that the whole world uses ?

This is one more reason for you all to stand up and shout, at the top of your voices... "f--k You, Microsoft"
