Works great. I know there are 3rd party solutions for this, but now its "natively supported".

I remember there was this kind of code pack for XP many years ago? I assumed they would have continued the development to Vista and 7, but apparently they didn't?

But I did stop caring because some other commercial OS supports RAW-files without any code packs. :)

There was another codec for Nikon users which worked with Windows 7 but I can't exactly remember which one, this new one is basically the same for me, only a tad bit faster.

Maybe it's my computer but it's still painfully slow going through RAW photos using Windows Photo Viewer. It's a good thing I have Lightroom.

No problems with that. On mine its just like opening a folder of JPEGs. Its your PC i think.

No D7000 or D5100? What are you playing at Microsoft?

I bought the full version of FastPictureViewer for my RAW images, it's great but it gobbles up memory like the world's ending. I also use Lightroom.
