Although it's good news that improvements are going on, it's sad to see that we still won't have native long filenames support in DOSFS and LanManFS. It's certainly the last (alive) OS not being able to access correctly fat-format media/CIFS shares.

I know there was Win95FS and LanMan98 add-ons, but both have their limitations and bugs, and moreover appear not to be supported anymore by WSS; anyway - as I said earlier, this should be implemented natively in the OS - especially as 90% of the job is already there.
