The Windows Vista blog announces the Microsoft Desktop Optimization Pack, a desktop solution that will help Windows desktop users tune their applications and operating systems. It will include applications and features that will enhance:

  • desktop deployment
  • application comaptibility
  • diagnostics and repair

This pack is a result of Microsoft aquiring a handful of nice companies, such as the great Winternals.

You can read all about it at the Desktop Optimization Pack site.

When I first read through that page something caught my attention:

Why are all the downloadable files .PDF ’s? Why don’t Microsoft use their own .XPS file format as an alternative?

I don’t mean that they should skip PDF, but if Microsoft would like to promote XPS they should really use it on their site.
