Microsoft's long-awaited new Windows file system is still a work in progress. Although Microsoft hopes to ship a test version of WinFS in late 2006, it could be several more years before the revamped storage mechanism finds its way into Windows Server.Published: December 10, 2004, 12:34 PM PST By Ina Fried Staff Writer, CNET News.com The software maker has already decided that WinFS will ship separately from Longhorn, the new desktop version of Windows that is due in 2006. On Friday, Windows Server Chief Bob Muglia said that WinFS will also not be a part of the server version of Longhorn that ships in 2007. "WinFS in not in the Longhorn client," he said in an interview. "It is also not in Longhorn Server." It is not even clear if Microsoft will include it with the Longhorn update that is scheduled to follow a couple of years later. "That would be the earliest," Muglia said. "We have to look and see if that is possible still, because it is a major new file system." Instead, WinFS may not debut in the operating system until the next decade, when the version of Windows beyond Longhorn, code-named Blackcomb, is slated to ship.
The only easy day was yesterday.
