TrueCrypt is of limited use on the Mac
Authored by: rloomans on Mar 11, '08 04:28:48PM

MacFUSE itself is neither slow nor unreliable. I use it extensively for both remote access (SSHFS, FTPFS) and local access (NTFS-3G, Parallels Desktop volume sharing) and it's been rock solid. Using MacFUSE and NTFS-3G is *much* faster for NTFS volumes than the OS X read only driver.... and you get write access as well.

On the other hand, some of the other FUSE filesystems are a bit flakey.... but that is the fault of those filesystems and/or the limitations of what they are doing, not the fault of MacFUSE.

If TrueCrypt on the Mac is unstable, it is more than likely TrueCrypt's fault, not MacFUSE.
