Infoworld - 12/30/2008 - Griping about the Windows 7 beta

...I find the move toward an aggregated search model to be a natural evolution of the Windows UI. After all, this was what the ill-fated WinFS was all about: Abstracting data from its physical or logical containers. Windows 7 is simply trying to accomplish this same goal using what are essentially pre-configured saved searches.

WinsFS Blogs - Wins FS Team Blog - Is WinFS dead? Yes and No. Yes, we are not going to ship WinFS as a separate, monolithic software component. But the answer is also No - the vision remains alive and we are moving the technology forward. A lot of the technology really was database stuff ?and we’re putting that into SQL and ADO. But some of the technology, especially the end user value points, are not ready, and we’re going to continue to work on that in incubation. Some or all of these technologies may be used by other Microsoft products going forward.

WinFS From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

WinFS (short for Windows Future Storage)[1] is the code name for a data storage and management system based on relational databases, developed by Microsoft and first demonstrated in 2003 as an advanced storage subsystem for the Microsoft Windows operating system, designed for persistence and management of structured, semi-structured as well as unstructured data. ....

WinFS was billed as one of the pillars of the "Longhorn" wave of technologies, and would ship as part of the next version of Windows. It was subsequently decided that WinFS would ship after the release of Windows Vista, but those plans were shelved in June 2006, with some of its component technologies being integrated into upcoming releases of ADO.NET and Microsoft SQL Server.[3] While it was then assumed by observers that WinFS was finished as a project, in November 2006 Steve Ballmer announced that WinFS was still in development, though it was not clear how the technology was to be delivered.[4]
