Longhorn taking a backseat to Tiger?


Url: http://www.microsoftmonitor.com/archives/007717...

I am perhaps most disgruntled about Apple's new metadata/search functionality which mirrors some of the importance of WinFS.  As Joe Wilcox stated:

"Apple also is in a position to exploit Microsoft missteps. Tiger will feature metadata search capabilities as part of the file system. Microsoft touted such capabilities with WinFS, but that file system now won't ship with Longhorn, if ever." (emphasis added, ed.)

I hope MSN Desktop search isn't Microsoft's answer to real metadata in the Post-Longhorn timeframe.
