    Phoronix: New NTFS Driver Misses Out On Linux 5.12 But Revved A 22nd Time

    While Linux 5.12 has many great new features, what you won't find in the mainline kernel is the new "NTFS3" kernel driver developed by Paragon Software for NTFS file-systems. That driver is still coming for a future kernel and has now been sent out a twenty-second time for review...

    When I tried patch version 21 of the dkms module, it gave me annoying random access errors when using Linux file permissions (uid & umask), contrary to ntfs-3g (which then has slow downs in games though). So I'd wait until it will have passed some bug fixing rounds upstream.

      Linux might have better NTFS driver than Windows with a such strenuous review process

        I highly doubt it. The NTFS code in Windows has been around forever, so it has likely seen a lot of refinements.

          Would be funny if the new NTFS driver will have better performance than ext4

            I'm wondering how tuxera feels about it.

              I've built it as a dkms module.
              Symbolic links made with ntfs3 and ntfs-3g are not compatible with each other, and neither are compatible with Windows.
              Major annoyance!

                If at first you don't succeed, try, try, try, try, try, try, try, try, try, try, try, try, try, try, try, try, try, try, try, try, try again.

                    Code:
                    echo -n "If at first you don't succeed, "; for _ in {1..20}; do echo -n "try, "; done; echo "try again."
                    (Just checking to see which is shorter to type out).
