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.

Member since:

then there must be free drivers for these filesystem (ZFS,HFS+ or anothr one) for win32.

More frankly, if ntfs drivers is shipped with the next macOX iteration, NTFS would become the de facto standard for file transfers (would you tell the adverage joe to download and install drivers to read you usb key and that he must have administrator right to do so ?).
