New file system from Microsoft

In the next Microsoft operating systems, a new file system will be used that is similar to a database. One advantage should be that the dreaded fragmented files can be handled better. According to the developers, it should also be more stable than all of Microsoft's previous file systems (FAT16, FAT32 and NTFS).

This new file system will already be used in the next generation operating system with the code name 'Longhorn'. The first beta versions of Microsoft's next operating system should be sent to beta testers as early as next year. However, Microsoft boss Steve Ballmer is not as enthusiastic as the developers themselves. The new file system alone is not enough, according to Steve Ballmer. You also have to adapt applications, one reason why there will be new versions of Office, Outlook and Co. again. Market watchers are also skeptical that the new file system will be ready in time for the beta test of 'Longhorn'.
