    I think birdie is right here, in this case the kernel dev's kinda fuked up. In this situation if I can't actually provide a better alternative I would have just merged the code and then one can improve on it iteratively later.

    Also improving on someone else coded to get it merged isn't unheard of in open source development and I don't know why people are giving it the negative connotation that they are (especially if the guys don't provide an alternative).

    Code style is obviously something that the contributor should fix though

    I thought I was already using this in xanmod 5.13.6-2? ntfs3 filesystem seems to work, maybe that just goes back to fuse until this is ready...

    I hope this time it will be merged.

    Never mind, I'm an old geezer and I'm talking BS. Linux is perfect, it perfectly supports everything and it has a ton of perfect software for it.
    Open source doesn’t mean no standard.

    Because their NTFS driver doesn't have any MS code, it's a clean room implementation.

    They need to just do a pull request already.

    Actually, it seems more like they keep posting iterations on the driver for the purposes of feedback, but rather than being rejected per se, no one seems to have taken it upon themselves to pull it into an upstream tree... so Linus invited them to send a pull request directly to him, if they want.

    Only problem is, you went off-topic. You talked about AMD sensors, not about NTFS. Are you desperately talking about NTFS trying hard to get back on-topic?

    You're not talking BS. You are just in the wrong thread.

    No, it doesn't. My 7-year-old capture card still has no Linux support. Razer device support is unofficial. My Broadcom wireless sometimes works, sometimes doesn't (even on Windows it's broken!). ca0132 is imperfect (no JACK support and sometimes it is not there but this happens on Windows as well).

    No, it doesn't either. Ardour and Krita work well, but they don't replace Pro Tools or Photoshop.
    No massive-name professional video editors on Linux either (except for Resolve).
