That's me being very flippant, I'm talking about Vista.  Lots of talk
about rewritten codebases, NTFS and this new database thing
replacing FAT, but if it still uses .ext style extensions to tell it and
the user what's in a file then there's an important legacy aspect still
stuck there[1].  Twelve years after Windows 95.  Anyhow, best not
start ranting off on a tangent.

[1] Yes things have been improved, but how long has the Mac had
 (and used) resource forks?
