Longhorn has a built-in RSS aggregator?

According to Scoble, Microsoft's new version of Windows, codename Longhorn, has a built-in RSS aggregator.

That was news to me. Is this for sure, or is it some kind of experiment?

If it's true, what do we know about the aggregator? How does it work? What formats does it support?

I remember a few years ago asking people at Microsoft to do something with RSS. I remember trying to convince Markoff at the NY Times that MS would adopt our vision of Web Services. If this is all true, at least I feel vindicated.

Further, I hope they're playing nice. So far they have.
