Windows 7 surprise: DivX built in

Submitted by: Beren @ 08:35 PM | Saturday, January 3, 2009 | (url: http://apcmag.com...)

DivX, XviD and H.264 will be built into the new version of Windows. While probably not impacting "nerds" too much as we already install it. I am looking forward to non-nerds from having it from the get go so that if I shoot them a copy of a tv show they missed they can play it without having to install anything.

and if wmp or anything other than quicktime would play h264, the world would be a better place.
