Microsoft finally says goodbye to Windows Vista
The Verge ------ Microsoft is bidding farewell to Windows Vista, more than 10 years after it first debuted.

Microsoft had ambitious ideas for Windows Vista in the years leading up to its release, including a new Windows Future Storage (WinFS) file system.
