    I was able build NTFS3 as a dkms module and give it try.
    One major annoyance is that symbolic links created with NTFS-3G or NTFS3 are not compatible with each other.
    Also, symbolic links created with NTFS3 or NTFS-3G didn't work on Windows 10. But symbolic links created in Windows 10 with "mklink /D" do work on Linux both with NTFS-3G and NTFS3. Weird. I think this should be fixed.
    Also, I got my NTFS partiton corrupted twice while mounted with NTFS3, trying to run a heavy game on Steam (Life is Feudal MMO). I could repair it using the disk tool from Windows 10.
    I don't think this is ready for production.

    It's looking like Paragon Software's "NTFS3" read-write Linux driver for Microsoft's NTFS file-system is on a trajectory where we could see it land possibly with the Linux 5.11 kernel kicking off at year's end. Friday marked the eleventh iteration of these patches that Paragon previously offered to commercial customers but is now in the process of being upstreamed...

    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.

    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.

    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.
