Nikon NEF standard integrated in Microsoft Windows

Nikon and Microsoft announced a collaboration involving the Nikon Electronic Format (NEF), Nikon’s popular RAW file format, and Microsoft’s operating system. The partnership will allow NEF files to be viewed and edited with all applications that access images within Windows, the current operating system, and the next system, codenamed "Longhorn". As a result of its inclusion in the Microsoft “Longhorn” operating system, NEF will become more widely accessible and have an even broader appeal than at present. Users will benefit from consistent file management and superior image quality as well as the promise of a familiar operating environment offered by Microsoft Longhorn.
