skolima writes "In response to requests for even easier access to the Binary Formats, Microsoft has agreed to remove any intermediate steps necessary to get the documentation, and will post it and make it directly available for a direct download on the Microsoft web site. Microsoft will also make the Binary Formats subject to its Open Specification Promise by February 15, 2008.
And they will even an Open Source converter implementation. Woot?"

I know we all have loved to bash MS, but they are and continue to be successful. They also have some internal teams that are doing something we never thought: innovating.

For everyone that likes XP better than Vista(ME v2.0), you must realize that there is some good software these people make. Not to say Vista isn't an engineering disaster...
