WinFS - Gone from Vista and now gone from futuer Windows...

Discussion in 'Windows Vista General Discussion' started by Tom Porterfield, Jun 24, 2006.

  1. "...we are not pursuing a separate delivery of WinFS, including the
    previously planned Beta 2 release. With most of our effort now working
    towards productizing mature aspects of the WinFS project into SQL and
    ADO.NET, we do not need to deliver a separate WinFS offering."

    It was a product looking for a problem and the indexing that is shipping in
    vista made alot of the need obsolete. Good ridance

  3. Indeed, other than instant search (which vista now provides without winfs)
    the average user would see no other benefit and would no doubt be stuck
    with a slower system and lots of bugs.

  4. Actually there are plenty of features unrelated to indexing which would
    be provided by WinFS. Go read the published docs.

    We aren't going to see WinFS???

    That was the **ONLY** feature of Vista that I was looking for.

    Putting the features into anything other than the file system itself just
    won't work - I'm not running funky utilities to do the job of my file
    system.
