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.

Thanks for replying on this site.

Will TxF be turned on by default for all file system ops? I hope it will. I hope you will include support for well-behaved legacy Win32 apps, so that early adopters see immediate benefits moving to Vista. This is similar to what Apple did with Carbon. Can you have a compatibility DLL that converts all but the lowest level file ops to use proper calls to TxF? Will ALL dotNet 2+ CLR apps use TxF under Vista?

C'mon, Microsoft is an incredibly brave company. Make everyone catch up to you guys again. More importantly, make things better for everyone without even letting them know it. There's an old adage stating that when something is done *right*, it can't be easily discerned that anything has been *done* at all. Most users won't notice TxF beyond the stupid errors and corrupton that are no longer happening, but everyone should *have* it.
