Hello, I recently learned that a Beta 1 of WinFS (a storage system originally planned for Longhorn, with XP support) surfaced for beta testers after the Longhorn Reset. It was decided that WinFS would no longer be included with Vista, but would now serve as an optional component for both Vista and XP after Vista was finished.

Unfortunately, the project was scrapped again, after the Beta 1 stage, and only works on Windows XP. It'd be pretty cool to see a missing feature like this, check out to see how much of WinFS's features were implemented at this point in development.
