It is. To meet the deadline they have to remove features. Only fools would get it now.

I know - its a piss. Not really just an XP Update though; still Avalon and Indigo in there and I'd still say its revolutionary - but without WinFS its still another NT System; which is not really what many of us wanted - I certainly didn't.

It'll still be damn good; and they still could bring out the WinFS later in a Second Edition like Windows 98?

Yeah; I know. The loss of the WinFS File System is a bigger morale loss than a system loss. Windows is still revolutionary without it but it was that extra thing that made everybody think; everything on here is new - its practically a new line of Windows.

I still think I year after it comes out they'll sort it out, finish it off, and ship Longhorn Second Edition like 98.

Then it will truely be a new system; and we all know what a success 98 was, eh?
