Abou DM, I don't think that such minor features will push new users into LH, MS have a lot of things reserved to LH... In the past, for example... When new versions of IE were released, they become available for past versions...

Much like media player actually... But it better integrate with WinXP...
With XP2, Ms is including a bunch of features that could be hold to LH, so this minor one, Download Manager, could also be a great upgrade!


About Ms Update, my idea was something like "Unified Update"... It couldn't be in the MS Update site, but it could be a API where we developers can use as standardized way to update clients...
