in the preview of the WinFS filesystem I´ve seen that the WinFS is "only" a DBMS system ontop of the NTFS filesystem.
Is there no new technology ? Because the NTFS filesystem has some missing features like transaction, journaling, ...
Is it only a new thing ontop of bad technology ? Or is it a new NTFS version ?
The latest Dot Net Show is two solid hours all about WinFS. From what I understand, it does let you make changes to the file system that are not actually committed until you want them to be. (i.e. transactions) And NTFS already has journalling whether
you notice it or not.
NTFS wil be recycled ? Great job Microsoft. Perhaps M$ can take a look at the "ext3" FS coming from Linux -> that is NEW TECHNOLOGY -> and no BIG SHOW about NOTHING.
I rue to be a programmer for the wrong platform (Win).
I hope M$ will release better software in future.
