Default NY Times hooks up with MS

Using something called Windows Presentation Foundation technology, the New York Times is beta-testing a paged, easy-to-search version of the paper. The free (for now) software downloads the entire issue, which can then be read on- or off-line.

It runs only on Windows XP SP2 or Vista, which has sparked an outcry on Times blogs from Mac and Linux users who believe there are cross-platform reader technologies that would be more appropriate.

The beta is open to subscribers of NYTimes online (for information about subscribing — which costs something unless you already subscribe to the print edition, contact the Times). If you have the right equipment, you can download the software, and use it immediately.

It does sound kind of cool.
