10.4: An overview of NTFS support in Tiger
Authored by: GlowingApple on Aug 04, '05 12:16:19PM

Writing to NTFS has plagued linux users for some time now as the file system is almost entirely proprietary. There are a few programs for a linux that can write to NTFS using the Windows dll driver, but this would not work on Mac (unless it could be recompiled for ppc or support could be added for Intel Macs with some kind of Wine support installed).

I would say that Mac doesn't have much of a choice until MS decides to license their filesystem for other OS's to use, and knowing MS's giving nature with their proprietary code...well, let's just say we may have to wait until someone hacks their code first...

Jayson --When Microsoft asks you, "Where do you want to go today?" tell them "Apple."
