I thought of this old post of mine today…
My detailed take on WinFS as a Black Hole project is at http://oakleafblog.blogspot.com/2006/06/microsoft-bites-bullet-winfs-bites.html.
as soon as i heard about WinFS, i was reminded of this post of yours.
i read back over it now and boy is it true. not just for winFs (of which i know nothing special) but of so many doomed projects i’ve seen first hand.
the point that mentioned:
"involve rewriting the application or system on top of brand-new technology"
that’s such a common and yet fundamental mistake.
thanks for a great re-read!
