New Decoders in Windows 7

Today was the first time I saw the below table references the new decoders in W7 along w/ their known limitations. I think it will help answer a lot of people's questions on MOV and VC-1 support and what is natively supported

I found it reading Media Streaming with Windows 7 post from the Engineering Windows 7 blog. A good reference blog if you haven't read it before and some good info on transcoding as well.
