    Have you proposed your new workflow via LKML?

      Well, I think it's a positive that the primary concern with this is the form in which the patch was offered for review. And not necessarily on technical grounds yet. The developers of this NTFS rw-driver would just need to clean up the request for review and all would be good, I'd wager to guess.

      Mainline NTFS rw support in the kernel would be a very welcome thing indeed. I hope that it does not get shot down over the somewhat muddy 27k lines of "spam".

        If you're on Workstation/Enterprise editions of Windows, default is ReFS I think:

          That is a think. ReFS is not able to be bootable with windows. So Workstation/Enterprise editions windows is still installed on NTFS. Yes NTFS is still the default. If you read above ReFS is still missing lots of features. Yes ReFS missing features difference between XFS vs ZFS look like minor issues.

            Microsoft is a giant and they couldn't finish it, wow, now I'm thinking Btrfs takes so long not because it was badly mismanaged, or was it..?

              Nope, you can't boot from ReFS so the system volume is still NTFS.

              Update:
              It seems a lot of neat features are missing in ReFS

                Way too often people that use GitHub / GitLab do a poor job of maintaining projects. Sending patches like that is stupid.

                  There are a lot of companies, both big and small, who would love to see this mainlined. I imagine a bunch of people will be working (for pay) to review and get the code into a mergeable state.

                  This is very good news all in all.

                    When the form itself make it difficult to review, it discourages getting to the technical review stage. And it would seem that someone did not even run checkpatch.pl against the code and address some of the low hanging fruit (although there are a number of false positives in that output due to the realities of NTFS names).

                      I mean, a) why would they be normal? and b) mailing lists are a very efficient way to do this once you're set up for it. SourceHut is a brand new repo hosting service which basically runs on this process.
