    Can you expand a bit on your use cases ? I am asking because I used to have a somewhat similar problem (Windows/Linux/macOS file sync), but over recent years, as the data volume that I needed to synchronize between OSes shrunk and network connections sped up, I ended up in a situation where just syncing the files with something like Nextcloud ended up good enough 99% of the time with the benefit of having another backup of the data "for free". For the occasional remaining large sync job, I do use NTFS drives since that's supported well enough on all the OSes mentioned above, but if needed I could probably live with the occasional tar/split/cat/untar inconvenience of FAT32 given how rarely the need arises.
    External hard drives transferring data between computers. I was all surprised pikachu face when I learned FreeBSD doesn't support exfat very well. Now I have a Windows 10, FreeBSD 12.1, and OpenBSD install all on separate ssds on the same computer I would like to share files between.

      They prefer the BSD, Apache, or ISC licenses. Fortunately, the graphics code in the Linux kernel is dual licensed so it can get imported. GCC was the one exception in the major *BSD projects until LLVM Clang came along.

          It's read-only because the driver is only needed for migrating away from Linux and GPL cancer. Nobody wants to go back to that prison once they get out.

            No, so BSD OSes can use it.

            This is why the GPL is such a double-edged sword - it prevents people from closing your code, but it also prevents people from using your code in other open source projects without contaminating their code.

              That is a good solution! Had not thought of that!

                  without working as a door for stealing your code? how is it a bad thing?

                    you didn't get it. nfs and samba are for running inside vm which reads linux filesystem. friend computer just has to be capable of running vms.

                      Trying to test this out now, looks like you can get the latest patch on a mainline kernel by cloning the repo and running

                      git remote add linux-review https://github.com/0day-ci/linux
                      git fetch --no-tags linux-review Konstantin-Komarov/NTFS-read-write-driver-GPL-implementation-by-Paragon-Software/20201031-220904
                      git checkout 0868596d71532d31ce16ee71c5e73c154878416e

                      Then building the kernel as usual.
