In Windows, to a majority of the users, the computers /is/ merely a
collection of documents, i.e.:
Computer = blue E (Hotmail) + E-mail + Word for any ol' plain-text +
Excel for numbers and PowerPoint for the super IT-competent.
Few people whom I know that use Windows hold on to photos, files, mail
archives or even understand the notion of data migration, export, import
and the like. To such people, WinFS would be aye... just... fine...
Speaking of which...
I don't see exactly how it (directly) affects us though.
