    Dubios in Enterprise

    Sure, this thing is fast. But is it safe? Probably not.

    Either something is slow and safe (lots of checksums and other safety calculations) or it is fast and unsafe (bypass all checks, no time is spent in doing checks). I dont see Enterprise use something that is unsafe. What happens if you cut the power, will the entire filesystem be corrupted then? No, I would not trust my data on such a filesystem. And you also consider that already the normal NTFS is unsafe and might corrupt your data:

    And in this driver, they have bypassed even more safety than in normal NTFS? How unsafe is it?


    Most probably, the developer can also modify ext4 according to same principles, and make ext4 faster (but unsafe). But, I would not use an unsafe version of ext4. I prefer slow and safe, rather than fast and maybe corrupted data. I would think: is my data silently corrupted now? How can I know that my data is still intact? There is no way of knowing that! (see the link above). In the link, there is a PhD thesis talking about silently corrupted data.

      1. No one needs NTFS driver - people usually use it to access stuff on microsht or repair it. With linux box. No need for 10x access.
      2. NTFS permission system is a cumbersome joke! Linux 888 is so simplistic and efficient!
      3. Consider the efficiency - with ext4 I have never ever had to reinstall - the filesystem ALWAYS recovered safely. In ntfs and windows xp times I have been reinstalling it on monthly basis.
      4. NTFS has badblocks... lols!
      5. Tuxera is closed source software. NTFS is proprietary.
      6. No data about precaching (how many MBs does tuxera waste for write-ahead cache?)

      EXT4 is tried and true system, opensource and tested. Vs wild claims of proprietary developer about unused cases on offtopic system.

        1. You just provided your use case while denying it exists. Fancy.
        2. You're incredibly wrong. My god, I just have no words.
        3. Reinstalling is unrelated to a filesystem maintaining its integrity. (As you didn't bother to mention a filesystem problem or the actions you attempted to repair it, I'm assuming that none existed and you simply lack education in the basic tenets of logic.)
        4. In which you make it obvious that you're a snot-nosed brat with no idea what he's talking about.

        Epilogue: You realise NTFS has been around for more than a decade, right? 5 and 6 are surprisingly correct (if lifted directly from other posts in this thread), but crapping on NTFS in your ignorance is rather uncouth. Though I find the use of Windows in any application hilarious at best (embedded is great-- love the BSOD vending machines; comedy gold), you cannot deny that NTFS has been widely deployed in almost every sort of environment imaginable (inside our atmosphere). That it's still capable of functioning at anything approaching a modern level (even bearing in mind the various versions) is nothing short of impressive.

        Your disdain almost certainly comes unfounded from the position of one who is not a programmer and knows nothing of the craft. You should stop making words now.

          .... the normal NTFS is unsafe and might corrupt your data:...
          i had some big troubles with ntfs drives when i used the 512 byte sector hard-drive , i have jumped to 4096 byte sector hard-drive mostly because that is the size wiwi like to use for formatting . then i do not regret it at all .
          [i have 6 2To drive of them , that are not very fast and 2 ssd 64Go for wiwi and fedora]

          i use Auslogics Disk Defrag and Defraggler , that are both very good for defrags

            Are you sure about that? http://www.symantec.com/security_res...032400-0103-99

            Linux.Psybot is a worm that spreads between embedded devices running Linux MIPS, such as routers and DSL modems.

            No interaction with the user needed. Awesome security, that.

              Not really, when the most popular web hosting OS goes 3 months without a security update, any positive comparison between the two gets shot in the ass.

              Linux security is only on par with Microsoft's when someone is being paid to provide security patches for the OS, otherwise it is a rather unfunny joke that ends up with your sites being used to host lolcats.

                Haha, awesome joke!

                Once executed, the worm attempts to obtain a shell in the remote computer using the following methods:
                • Bruteforcing user name and passwords of administration interfaces
                • Using an exploit for other vulnerable daemon

                  No, it's on pair with Microsoft when you open all ports, run all services and every installed applications as well. If nothing happens then you have to find some trojan horse and run it.

                    Is this supposed to be proof of something? Bruteforcing of weak password against a router running (which must have enabled external administration). Weak password on a connected system allowing remote login, no security can save you there.

                    Full threat assessment from Symantec on Linux.Psy

                    Wild Level: Low
                    Number of Infections: 0 - 49
                    Number of Sites: 0 - 2
                    Geographical Distribution: Low
                    Threat Containment: Easy
                    Removal: Easy

                    If this was the best you could dig up then I'd say you made Linux look very secure. Or am I missing something?

                      You have probably missed this:

                      To proof Linux' security its updates have to be delayed for about 3 months (I'd give one more week as a bonus, so we can boast we're better than Windows, because we holded the place longer).
