    community ntfs-3g driver is painfully slow.

      Watch out those upcoming hordes of Linux servers using NTFS because it's faster.

        It's slow as hell, but the only thing that saves the day. I'm just glad it's there. The in-kernel driver is a dead piece of crap.

          I'd only use this if I need to rescue a broken Windoze system using a Linux livecd or to play my music that's on an NTFS partition

            In my case, it's mostly the music ;-) But installing games and other software in Windows and in Wine in the same location is also very (very!) helpful. Hard disks are very expensive right now.

              Does it have problems reading?

                It can't write. Which makes it useless for me. If it weren't for NTFS-3G, I couldn't imagine how I could use my computer right now.

                  If it reads flawlessly, it's good enough for many purposes, such as rescue use. I don't see why call it crap in that case.

                    A file system that can't create files? Sorry, that *is* crappy :-P Another term might be "lame" instead of crap. Use that if it suits you better ^_^
