The WinFS team has a blog, and posted a very interesting (and way cool) information piece on one way WinFS will be able to be utilized. It looks awesome. I'd like to see the current release notes go a bit more in depth about how WinFS can be used, though. I've downloaded and installed the beta, but unfortunately, I now have no idea what to do with it. Do I move my current folders into the WinFS store? Do I simply create new folders within the WinFS store and use them going forward? What other bits of software do I need on my computer to utilize WinFS? Can Outlook 2003 be used in the way described in the blog (as asked in one of the comments)?
I understand this is just a beta1 release, but if folks don't know what to do with it, I'm not sure how it's going to get the message out that WinFS is going to be awesome.
