Let's see, the Longhorn Build 4074 was released before the summer of 2004.

Near the end of summer 2004 we can see this:

WinFS Axed From Longhorn Client and Server
By Mary Jo Foley
Microsoft confirms developer buzz that its next-gen storage subsystem won't make it into its 2006 client and 2007 server Windows releases.

Microsoft announced on Friday, as expected, that it is cutting some of its planned Longhorn features in order to get the desktop version of the product out the door by 2006.

The Windows File System (WinFS) — technology that was set to simplify information storage and retrieval — won't make it into the final, shipping versions of Longhorn client, company officials confirmed. WinFS also won't be part of Longhorn server, the server complement of Longhorn that is still due out in 2007, as Microsoft announced earlier this year.
And so on. Clearly, you have a fact problem. You can't seem to get them straight. Also, here is some information about Mac and their filesystems:

You'll note that FAT32 is NOT their native filesystem and NEVER has been. Breathe deeply... it's okay... the facts won't hurt you.

i should have put in my history
im primalery a linux user
sorry

Mac OS X does NOT use fat32. It uses HFS+

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File_sy...under_Mac_OS_X

if you are referring to the older OS from Apple, it is comparable to maybe windows 98. and it may very well use fat32, although according to wikipedia HFS+ was made in 1998 and is part of older Mac OS, too.
anyway, no point talking about pre-2000 operating systems.

I think this should go into the Distro reviews section

yeh ur rite but i cant change it now

so, does this mean they cannot make the os stable enought to run programs properly? or does it mean that everything you do gets logged all over your system in case someone wants to take a peek at it? maybe both.

first of all nospin
i gave you a 100% factual review -ext2 forgot it srry
second
its stable even in this beta it hasent crashed at all to be fair

i invoked a app crash delibritly to see how it would respond its my job and it handeled superbly.

as for this little list

LISTEN
THATS THE BIGGEST CHANGE SINCE DOS
COMPLETELY NEW

1 win fs IS STILL THERE
CLICK HERE FOR CONCRETE PROOF

EXPLAIN THAT AWAY!


The thing I personally like most about LH is the new references to drives. It's no longer C:\, D:\, A:\, but rather Longhorn, DVD Drive, Floppy Drive. It certainly makes the FS easier to navigate.
The whole Documents, Games, Music etc. all relies upon WinFS, so it won't be in RTM. It's just grouping WinFS meta tags. When WinFS is off (like I have it) the links serve no use, and are easily removed in the registry (still the stupidist part of Windows).
wrong you dont have it
and so it won't be in RTM
STOP TALKING ********
Im the registered beta tester here
the entirelonghorn os is built around win fs

Do you know what Palladium actually is?
you got that from hacksector!

Linux is a kernel. A K-E-R-N-E-L. A kernel cannot be compared to an entire operating system.
Replace linux with red hat linux

Hey, at least it looks like they've finally separated apps from the kernel so crashing an app doesn't mean crashing the whole OS - give them credit for THAT much, at least!

CRASHING is realy not annoying in longhorn 1 sec stall
it never did it when i was using it i had to invoke one
but even if it does youll never know it crashes unless you clickon the icon
crashing will be a thing of the past
you will never see another 3 has caused an error in 3.dll
you see a 1 sec stall
its stable on 128mb 500mhz p4

WinFS Axed From Longhorn Client and Server

anyway, no point talking about pre-2000 operating systems
yeh 2000 brougth me back to windows for a while

frob23 02-15-2005 06:08 AM

Look your screenshot of Build 4074 is not concrete proof that WinFS will be in longhorn. I seriously suggest you look into some recent news about Longhorn and WinFS and not a build that is many months old and out of date.

Windows longhorn and the WinFS actually made the Vaporware awards last year because of the announced removal of the filesystem.

Now... take your crappy review... your poor spelling... and your myopic focus... put them all in a little tiny bag and defenestrate them before you make a bigger fool of yourself.

x-32b 02-15-2005 06:09 AM

and one very importent point
The whole Documents, Games, Music etc. all relies upon WinFS, so it won't be in RTM

WIN FS WILL BE IN THE FINAL BUILD OF LONGHORN OR
"phallius xp"
Without it the os wont function
read the technoligy section again
but it may cause the os to be delayed again

1) Actually, just not titling the thread Linux vs. Longhorn would've sufficed.

2) Mac does not use FAT32 (although, it is compatible, but not native)

3) I don't know what "hacksector" is

4) Replace linux with red hat linux - this isn't fair, as RedHat not longer makes an Open-source OS. It's enterprise only. Replace it with Slackware...

5) Hey, at least it looks like they've finally separated apps from the kernel so crashing an app doesn't mean crashing the whole OS - give them credit for THAT much, at least! - Bout time...

Okay, you won't take my word for it. How about Mr. Bill Gates'?

The plan we have does give up WinFS shipping with Longhorn. And so if you want my basic assessment here, the glass is three-quarters full.

the object based os needs it.
sorry i cant go intomore detail

frob23 02-15-2005 06:15 AM

Agreed, this thread would have been a very different thing if the title was not what it was. There have been many, many threads talking about the features of Longhorn that have demonstrated clear thinking and levelheaded investigation. This one picked a poor theme with the title and continued to run with it.

humm your thinking of something completly different under the same name
im talking abou......sorry

BW~Merlin 02-15-2005 06:17 AM

I think the delay in the winfs is so they have time to put in the virus, Trojan, worm and spyware folder which will probably be renamed to something like Microsoft extra’s.

x-32b 02-15-2005 06:17 AM

now thats just childish
