      Well, I'm waiting for years to see something as simple as file / directory creating date.
      I hope this brings it closer.
      But now I'm wondering if this is Linux only filesystems or could be also for NTFS.

        Ext4 came into stable in 2008. Yes to access crtime was do horrible operations before 2017. Even in 2017 the operations to get crtime was do horrible operations base on raw inode. https://tecadmin.net/file-creation-time-linux/.

        Now NTFS driver in kernel could be updated. Also the fuse based NTFS drivers we have like NTFS3G cannot work yet as crtime for fuse generated inodes is not a option.

        To get to where native Linux kernel file systems have a option has been a long road. Fuse file systems still longer down the road.
