WinFs seems to be a really interesting filesystem imho. If you also wish to know more on it I suppose you give this a glance http://www.ntfs.com/

WinFS is no longer included in Vista....the performance was so bad that they stripped it out. There is speculation it will be released as an add-on later, but will it be an overlay or will it be a true File System?

From what ive heard its not a true FS in its own right just an overlay/upgrade to NTFS and they have said they will add it later so it will be a nice upgrade in a service pack, hopefully this way they can release it for XP as well along with one of the last of the service packs.

Maybe some day they will bring it back as a true FS, but not today. What i would like is a proper new open source FS(other than FAT) for everyone to use Windows, Linux and Apple but i doubt it will ever happen that would be to good for the consumers.
