    Will Microsoft keep enhancing and shipping the product for Windows XP or will the development of the seperate utility cease and all efforts concentrate on the integrated tool in Windows Vista?

    I think they will be mostly focused on Windows Vista, but XP is not dead yet, you know. Big Smile

    Funny that no one from the team has responded to this yet. Ussually they are the first which doesnt bode well for the product.

    <sarcasm> What are they thinking of taking the weekend off???  </sarcasm>

    The WDS on XP/2k3 is the same Engine as the one used in Vista .. just some UI slapped on top of it (no need in Vista, since the OS provides the search "UI"). I guess that would mean they can continue to work on it improving the UI for XP/2k3 while Vista+ OS ships with the same Engine and maybe a different UI, since there its integrated into the shell so might have to give a different look/feel and featureset.

    Alright guys, back from a painful weekend (my new knee acted up a bit Wink), here's what I can tell you about WDS:

    We are working on a new release.

    We will ship on Vista and XP.

    We are not 100% sure if we can ship the "make coffee and clean the kitchen" feature in this release (but we have people working on it).

    I can't go into more details right now, expect an official "coming out" later this summer.

    This is just typical Microsoft. You sell "wow" features up front, then drop them for delivery. WinFS was just a symptom of a long slide.

    And now this.

    You should be ashamed. Ashamed.

    Good stuff, thanks for the update.

    Now, this version will get back to having a Programs sub-group...right? Smiley
