Yes! You Can Do So Now! (Date Published: 7/26/2011)
It's a good news to photographers that shoot RAW format files :D

Introducing : " Microsoft Camera Codec Pack "
(Download Link : x86 , x64 )
- it enables us to view a variety of device-specific file formats.

So basically after you install this package, those supported RAW camera files will be viewable in your Windows Explorer. =)
