The filesystem is called WinFS but it *won't* be released with Vista. It's not due to come out until Vista SP1 or possibly even SP2. You're looking at two years at least before anyone gets to see WinFS.

there's more than linux in my head.

try install vista on moderately old hardware (like, a year old). should be okay. except for at least graphics. their "new" ""WVDDM"" isn't supported by lots of graphics card drivers. your installer will politely inform you that the driver isn't for this version of windows and will exit.

i think ATI have some beta drivers, for some cards. intel haven't started yet i don't think. probably both have for their new and development chips, but not the old ones. they will be like "ooh well you know that is a ``windows XP`` graphics card, you'll need a """Vista graphics card"""" like the one Dell are bundling with their Vista-compatible/enabled PCs.

(how much fun would you have with linux and *THAT* PC ooh yes)

and bringin' in a new FS in a service pack? new functionality in what is supposed to be patchs and fixes ... bery intrestin, but normal really. 'suppose you'll get a nice tool for converting from NTFS/FAT to WinFS but not back again. it will be fun working with those disks from linux. and standard partition resizing tools will be like "what the fuck is that", so that will have to be bought again.

note: reiser4 in linux, has been over 10 years in development, and is already released.
