WinFS will aid in searching, but that's only one aspect of its architecture. WinFS is about building an object-oriented, relational data store for items (files and non-file-backed objects). A universal method for accessing the store is provided, and the store can span and be synced across multiple volumes and devices. Items in the store have types defined in common, shared schemas. New types can be created or existing ones extended to better address the needs of a specific domain.
