Microsoft Back when Windows Vista was still known as Windows Longhorn, the operating system contained a very interesting and promising feature, a feature promoted as one of the 'pillars' of Longhorn: WinFS. WinFS was a storage subsystem for Windows, based on a relational database, that could contain whatever data you wanted to put in it. Thanks to the relational properties of the database, you could then create relationships between data, or let the computer do that for you.

I pretty much expect that when a new version of Windows is announced, it'll be out at least a year or two after they said and that some features will be dropped.

Maybe they've finally learned their lesson and will actually deliver on time and with whatever features they promise for Windows 7. I'm not holding my breath though ;)

last i heard it was put on the back burner because they were wasting too much time trying to do fancy things rather than make an OS.
