WinFS: Take 2...

I've spent a couple hours digging back into the new WinFS.  So far it seems interesting, but only as a new datastore.  It doesn't seem to be trying to be the Object File System from teh Cairo days, though that may be because of it's bolted-on status on XP.  It is still stored in a SQL Server engine, so that is good.  It also looks like the actual files (not just the metadata) are being stored there. 

I will probably update my WinFS DB Explorer and release it next week with the new bits.  Being able to look at the DB would be fun!
