WinFS, the new file system for Windows "8"?

Windows 7 will continue to use the good old and especially slow NTFS but how about the next release of Windows? WinFS which was originally planed and drafted for Windows Vista but disappeared from Microsoft's product pipeline soon as it was not ready. But Microsoft kept its Data Platform Vision which was the main goal for WinFS: Your Data, Any Place, Any Time. However many WinFS achievements were merged to Microsoft SQL 2008.
