It has almost been over three (3) years since the release of Windows XP in (2002) and another year to go till we get to experience the much touted Microsoft Windows code named “Longhorn”.

With Microsoft announcing the release of beta version of Longhorn available for developers in summer of 2005 distributing modified version of the operating system to give developers the experience of whats to come in the future.

The technologies mentioned and talked about so far include WinFS, Avalon, IE7, and native support for 64-bit processors.

WinFS is an integrated file system which literally keeps track of all files in a database as you store them and in a way enabling you to search on demand anything on the computer.
