    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!
