Microsoft shows off JPEG rival

I think this is a case of Microsoft suffering from the NIH (Not Invented Here) syndrome. As far as I can see, this is just another proprietary format to confuse things, albeit a particularly good one. Portable Network Graphics (PNG) format already does everything MS' new one does.

PNG is open source and free for all, which of course sticks in Microsoft's craw and they give it only the most grudging support.
