here is one reason: how about the fact that once windows 7 will come out, it will be as buggy as vista was when it first came out! by then, vista will be nice and bug free (for the most part)

Even if Windows 7 does come out in 2009, it will basically be Vista "Reloaded" rather than a complete rebuild. No way they can develop a brand new from scratch OS these days that fast. Now, if they go back to XP SP3 and try to build from that, then they might come up with what Vista should have been from the beginning.

I was involved in the Vista beta program and I can tell you having beta tested since Windows 95 that the Vista beta was the worst of all of them by far. I knew Vista was not destined for greatness right from the start. However, it does run pretty well on my rig even though (to me) it is more of a Window XP remix than anything else.

whats wrong with NTFS? WinFS emulates the way databases are stored. While this is nice for searching for files - thats about its only advantage last time i checked.

WinFS wasn't scrapped because it was too hard to program or because of time restraints. I doubt it will be in windows 7. If they do actually introduce it int W7, they will probably make it apart of Vista SP2.

Exactly :-) Transactional NTFS, reparse points, etc., all new to Vista:
