Redmond | News: Developers Get First Look at WinFS

Redmond | News: Developers Get First Look at WinFS: "Clark maintains the underlying themes and functionality of WinFS have not changed since the storage subsystem was disconnected from Longhorn a year ago, but he says the uses for WinFS that Microsoft will emphasize have changed because of subsequent work in Windows Vista.
Two major themes that are apparent in Windows Vista Beta 1 are better organization and navigation of files and folders and enhanced search. Those Vista features depend on additional and improved use of Windows' indexing technology, which already existed in previous versions of Windows.
WinFS was originally positioned as key technology for delivering those organization and search improvements, and WinFS will still be important in driving improvements to those features down the road, Clark said."
