WinFS and MSH

Yesterday; I downloaded Microsoft Shell (MSH/Monad) and Windows File System (WinFS) and I am pleased and super excited to see the strong roots of Microsoft .NET in these two platforms.

We can create Command-lets and/or functions (sort of scripts) that can call any .NET assembly or base class library components; and similarly WinFS exposes a rich set of API in .NET. WinFS is little heavy for my desktop machine; and I think its time to upgrade my workstation hardware :)

Overall I am impressed with these two implementations, what happened to JavaOS?

SQL Server, BizTalk, Sharepoint, many parts of Windows like presentation (Avalon), communication (Indigo), shell (Monad), platform api (WinFX) and now file-system (WinFS) are getting benefits of .NET/CLR. Lets see when Microsoft Exchange gets .NETized

Why MSExchange?what benefit will you get?only a ".NET way" to access Exchange APIs?i think MS wont do such mistake,the core of the Server will not based on managed code due to slow performance of Framework
