WinFS 101: Introducing the New Windows File System

Thomas Rizzo, Director (!) on the SQL Server Product Management team, kicks off his WinFS column with an overview of why we need it and what it is. I always love the first piece in any column, as it sets the grounding information for what readers are going to need to understand reading future pieces. I especially love them from internal folks, as it really gives a flavor of what the product team (WinFS, in this case), had in mind that drove them to build their thing the way they did. Check it out.
