   [1]osViews.com writes "Charles Arthur of Independant.co.uk has an
   interesting editorial which analyzes Microsoft's recently postponed
   'WinFS,' the file system that Microsoft had been planning to implement
   in Longhorn. His editorial reminds us that this technology, previously
   referred to as the 'NT Object Filing System' was intended for a
   previous version of one of Microsoft's operating system's code named
   'Cairo.' Microsoft first spoke of the 'NT Object Filing System' in
   1992 and scheduled a beta release in 1996 and then [2]a full release
   in 1997. But limitations cause it to continue being delayed."
