    [news=http://img337.imageshack.us/img337/3858/microsoftlogo0gi.gif]Microsoft today released a test version of its next-generation file system, WinFS, well ahead of schedule.



    The software giant made the first beta of the new file system available to Microsoft Developer Network subscribers, according to a company spokesman. Developers had not expected to see a test version of WinFS until next year, according to a previous time line provided by Microsoft.

    WinFS will not be a part of the next version of Windows, Windows Vista, when it ships at the end of next year, but will be available to the operating system as an add-on release sometime in 2007, says Quentin Clark, director of program management for WinFS at Microsoft.

    If it doesn't I'm sure it will warn you.
    But they are supposed to be releeasing an XP version, if not along with the betas then when the vista one is released.

    Its for developers and will work on xp sp2 .



    Quote : Microsoft officials said Beta 1 runs on Windows XP with Service Pack (SP) 2 or "higher" releases. It does not run on Windows Server 2003, Vista Beta 1 or Longhorn Server Beta 1.

    i know, what am reffreing to is that installing the FS(which people r talking about it here) is not big deal, converting the partiton and not losing files is my concern.

    I installed it, there's no converting to do.

    Actually I can't for the life of me figure out what this FS does, or why anyone would want it.
    Someone try it and see what i mean...
