    Hmm I have a hard time believing this. The 'native' implementation of NTFS on windows 7 is much much slower than my ext4 partition with Ubuntu 10.10.

    I have made a couple of tests with my new Crucial C300 256 Gb SSD, and the ext4 is super fast on this drive. Even though I only have SATA II, I get read speeds up to 290 MB/sek, which is almost three times as fast as I get in windows 7.

    I really doubt that they managed to make a feature complete ntfs implementation that much better than windows' native ntfs implementation.

    i use Auslogics Disk Defrag and Defraggler , that are both very good for defrags
    AFAIK you should NOT defrag SSD's. Even though they seem defragmented with the tools, they are not. Keep in mind that the SSD drives uses very advanced algorithms to place the data in a logical order uniformly spread out on the SSD. In contrast to a HDD, the data needs not to be placed continuously on the disk and hence, defragmentation does nothing but harme (defragmentation will even not place the data, since the SSD will decide where to put it anyway).

    EDIT:
    Well it seems that you are indeed not defragmenting the SSD's My mistake.

    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.
    >>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.
    >1. You just provided your use case while denying it exists. Fancy.
    It is WINDOWS machines that are repaired.

    >> 2. NTFS permission system is a cumbersome joke! Linux 888 is so simplistic and efficient!
    >2. You're incredibly wrong. My god, I just have no words._
    Oh, I must be so wrong, typing those cacls in cmd or clicking my way through the permissions and be happy it works somehow, when on my linux machines chmod/chown or right click fantastically are efficient. Linux file permissions are DREAM, FACE IT.

    >>3.3. 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.
    >3. Reinstalling is unrelated to a filesystem maintaining its integrity.
    WOW, what a noob! I tell him NTFS f!cks up my data and is unable to store even metadata properly, while ext3/4 journal everything and he insists it is unrelated.
    Try to defragment and hit reset button!

    >>4. NTFS has badblocks... lols!
    >4.In which you make it obvious that you're a snot-nosed brat with no idea what he's talking about.
    Another "masterpiece" of yours! Badblocks are to be handled ONLY by the device itself.
    1. Badblocks DO NOT belong to filesystem
    2. Drive logic is ony responsible for transparent badblock
    -- detection
    -- recovery
    -- relocation
    3. For gods sake, there is SMART and it is more than enough to handle that.
    One can also use SpinRite or Victoria to detect possibly faulty hardware, but it is unrelated to FS.
    The utility you mentioned is only a simple tool to test each sector by writing and reading from it. It is unrelated to FS.

    Ext does not store USELESS badblock data, unlike NT. Why? Because it IS DRIVE LEVEL. What happens FS marks block as BAD and device simply REMAPS it already? Yes - that "LOGICAL" bad block is now actually USEABLE, because its REMAPPED by DEVICE. Yet NTFS plays dumb-arse, just like FATTY.

    Epiloge: NTFS has been around windows systems, that are USELESS. Ext has been around for decade (since birth of linux kernel?) and is most polished and most universal fs system around. It is not all-in-one FS, hence different FS exist (NILFS, BTRFS, REISER, JFS, XFS), but it is UNIVERSAL and strong. And if you want ext3 access from windows - there is a driver - use it.

    Thou shall sh!t up instead, please?

    actually, if an SSD shows fragmentation, it actually is fragmented. the algorithms you are talking about do exist but they actually cause more fragmentation. SSDs shouldn't be defragmented because they have a definite amount of times they can be written on (so the algorithm is used to make sure each cell of data is used as evenly as possible, to expand the lifespan of the drive), but also SSDs have a seek time of less than 1ms, so defragmenting does nothing but hurt your drive. it's also recommended to turn off indexing on SSDs, for the same reasons.

    Sure, whatever you say.

    I notice how the title of your second link is "The First Linux Botnet". The fact that a botnet on Linux is unusual enough to be worth mentioning, not to mention be the very first one, should tell you just how much better Linux security is. Botnets are so common on windows that they aren't even worth mentioning.

    have you installed update 007 ? it is a very good firmware update and it renders disk faster http://www.crucial.com/support/firmware.aspx
    last advice : you need 006 before 007

    Not quite accurate. It's true, admins don't use them all that much, but they *are* used by some of the desktop frameworks, e.g to grant a user access to audio devices when they log in, then revoke it when they log out. More flexible than simply adding the user to the 'audio' group.

    Still, for day-to-day operation, the simple group-based model works pretty well...

    The problem is that there was no weakness used except stupidity of the administrators that left default password or some services opened for "general public".
