Redmond | Redmond Report Article: Cut From Longhorn, WinFS Is in Peril

Redmond | Redmond Report Article: Cut From Longhorn, WinFS Is in Peril: "The Windows Future Storage (WinFS) technology that got cut out of Windows 'Longhorn' is in serious trouble, and not just the hot water a feature might encounter for missing its intended production vehicle.
WinFS faces a much greater threat. It's entering that resource allocation limbo that a Microsoft technology encounters when it's no longer on the priority list for the next major rev of Windows."

Somehow I suspect the conventional wisdom doesn't apply in this instance, since WinFS is one of Bill Gates' highest priorities.
