WinFS and the promises of the file-system.

with 17 comments

Two somewhat interesting articles on the potential uses for an need of more powerful file-systems in Longhorn.

  • One from eWeek about the evo-not-revo-lutionary nature of Longhorn’s file-system.
  • A WebLog from JupiterResearch about, well, pretty much the same thing.
    Just thought these were interesting reading if you’re a metadata and database-type geek.
    As a relevant aside: I am continually amazed by the lack of innovation we see coming out of Redmond, when they’ve (supposedly) got both the $$ and the people to make it happen. One could well ask Microsoft, where was iTunes for Windows? We saw the standard FUD after the fact, but where was some real competition from WMP?
