Linux Finally Linux has got full read-write open source NTFS support! Preliminary benchmarks show that the still unoptimized driver already sometimes twice as fast as ext3 and 20-50 faster than the commercial Paragon NTFS. Interestingly Captive NTFS, which uses the native Windows NTFS driver, fails all benchmarks with file loss.

You are right that ms won again.
but to be honest: I would realy like ntfs to become the next fat. it is a great fs with most of the modern features. we must get rid of fat asap. and imo ntfs is the only thing (besides befs) that can do it.
lets face it, reiser is to fragile, ext to basic, and xfs&co are just overkill.
