Windows When Microsoft announced a year ago that it had decided to rip the next-generation Windows File System from Longhorn, many company watchers wrote off the feature as little more than vaporware. But it seems Microsoft didn't simply shelve WinFS. According to sources close to the company, Microsoft just last week put the finishing touches on the first beta release of WinFS. And the company is moving ahead with plans to back-port the WinFS technology to Windows XP.

Sorry, I just had to throw that in because it irritates so many people. ;) I hope y'all forgive me.

I for one am looking forward to whatever bits and pieces Microsoft will throw our way. I STILL think (as I have said before) that they are trying to pull a little bit of wool over everyone's eyes and come out with more than they are saying for Longhorn.

Microsoft may be put down a lot, but they also do a lot to drive accepted technology in the computer industry (or at least the USER industry) since they own the desktop market.

On the other hand, I will stick with my Macs for now. Very excited for Leopard and also for the new Mactel mini's to come out so I can retire this mini (one I am on now) to my son or daughter and get me a new dual core mini! ;)
