WinFS heads for Microsoft database | CNET News.com

According to CNET NEWS.COM Microsoft is no longer pursuing delivery of WinFS, the new file-system for Windows.

The new strategy seems to be to develop the mature parts of WinFS for use in SQL Server and ADO.NET.

This sounds like the final demise of the Cairo project, the mythical project to deliver a distributed object oriented file-system, that has been touted by Microsoft since the early 90ies.

Could the long walk to Cairo be over?
