This ought to be interesting to see how stable this is. I dont think I
will be testing this too soon on critical systems, but it is definitely
something to watch.
Project implements the first full read/write free access to NTFS disk
drives. You can mount your Microsoft Windows NT, 200x or XP partition as
a transparently accessible volume for your GNU/Linux.
This compatibility was achieved in the Wine way by using the original
Microsoft Windows ntfs.sys driver. It emulates the required subsystems
of the Microsoft Windows kernel by reusing one of the original
ntoskrnl.exe, ReactOS parts, or this project's own reimplementations, on
a case by case basis. Project includes the first open source MS-Windows
kernel API for Free operating systems. Involvement of the original
driver files was chosen to achieve the best and unprecedented filesystem
compatibility and safety.
As opposite to other projects this is currently the only software
supporting the full read/write access including the possibility to
create/delete files, modify directories etc.
