No. This is an example of the power of social media.  I had planned to ignore it but I’ve had enough requests for “official confirmation” that I guess I have to say something :). Last week someone tweeted “Microsoft phasing out the TFS version control repository and moving to Git. Unofficially confirmed at a TFS presentation” It caught on and created a minor retweet storm. It’s simply not accurate.  I’ve been told it was the result of a misunderstanding generated in a hallway conversation between one of our MVPs and a customer at a presentation on

Probably the part that caused us the most pain
with Lucene was the fact that it isn’t transactional. That is, it is quite easy to get into situations where the indexes are corrupted. That make it… challenging to use it in a database that needs to ensure consistency. The problem is that it is really not a use case that Lucene is well suited for. In order to ensure that data is saved, we have to commit often, the problem is that in order to ensure good performance, we want to commit less often, but then we will the changes if we crash. For that matter, Lucene doesn’t do...(Read whole news on source site)
