ReactOS, the open-source OS aiming for binary compatibility with Windows 2000, finally supports reading NTFS volumes.

ReactOS was most recently talked about on Phoronix for one of its developers coming up with an open-source AMD SI ISA compatible GPU design while the latest accomplishment from this open-source developer group is read support for NTFS file-systems.

Pierre Schweitzer of ReactOS shared, "ReactOS now supports reading files from NTFS volume. This was a long awaited feature people were asking for." A new ReactOS ISO re-spin is now available containing this support.

While ReactOS now has NTFS read support, it's still lacking write support.
