Linux NTFS support to get better

Linux NTFS Project

Apparently, anyway. Slashdot seem to have the story that the Linux NTFS project have released a beta version of their NTFS driver for Linux that should prove very useful for those (like me) running Windows + Linux dual-boots.

At the moment, using Fedora’s kmod-ntfs (available in the Livna repository), I can read my Windows NTFS partitions in Linux, but not write to them. The Linux NTFS project claim to have read/write support.

Now I would test this out, but it being a beta and my data being important, I won’t try it out until I’ve got a backup of everything done (I don’t know that it might not do something terrible to my data).

Anyway, good work and thanks to the Linux NTFS team.
