Windows Surendra Verma, Development Manager on the Vista Kernel team, digs into Vista's new Transactional File System with Charles Torre. TxF, as it is referred to internally, is a new kernel construct that is part of an updated Vista NTFS. Surendra provides a high level overview of TxF in this video. Elsewhere, Microsoft is serious about meeting its ship date for Windows Vista during the second half of 2006.

Filesystem transactions eh?
Ok, so what do you do when you have N transactions opened
racing at *some* common directories and files?

Do you block? If so, do you have dead-lock detection?
Please elaborate.

Do you fail-fast? If so, is first-come the champion?
Please elaborate.

And finally, what of applications not using tx-semantics? How do they fare against applications
tx'ing. Is each fs-op then considered a xaction?
If this is the case, what is the performance
impact on fs-op considering the overhead?
