Engineering Windows 7: An outlook on upcoming features and concepts

Investigating if there will be a new file system in the upcoming Windows operating system, I have found two interesting articles describing the main goals to be reached in Windows 7. But firstly: No, I have not found anything about a new file system in Windows 7. Apparently Microsoft will continue to use its archaic NTFS file system in the upcoming Windows release -- no WinFS at all... And secondly the articles: In this article a MS employee blogs about Microsoft's approaches to increase the performance of Windows 7 and make it even faster than Windows Vista. Also there is an article where the philosophy of Windows' component configuration/setup is explained.
