10.6: Enable native NTFS read/write support
Authored by: Bruno Grieco on Oct 01, '09 05:25:53PM

AFAIK, Mac OS never had NTFS write capabilities because it's ILEGAL !

Microsoft licenses NTFS drivers for read-only purposes. Only Windows is supposed to have write access.

OMG, heck, this reminds me of Apple Vs. Psystar...

10.6: Enable native NTFS read/write support
Authored by: tatilsever on Oct 02, '09 08:19:00AM

Unless users of NTFS volumes sign an agreement that prohibits them from writing to that volume by anything other than Windows, users are free to do whatever they wish that volume. If somebody can reverse engineer how to write to it, everything should be OK. However, any company that licenses read access ability from Microsoft may have to promise not to distribute software that provides write access.
