Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu Normally Linux systems can only read from Windows NTFS partitions, but not write to them which can be very annoying if you have to work with Linux and Windows systems. This is where ntfs-3g comes into play. ntfs-3g is an open source, freely available NTFS driver for Linux with read and write support. This tutorial shows how to install and use ntfs-3g on a Ubuntu Edgy Eft desktop to read from and write to Windows NTFS drives and partitions. It covers the usage of internal NTFS partitions (e.g. in a dual-boot environment) and of external USB NTFS drives. Additionally, one more FS-related article (How To Resize ext3 Partitions Without Losing Data), and one Ubuntu (Why Ubuntu Is Number One).

etc etc pick a search engine.

You can spot an Ubuntu user a mile away, they say things like BSD, Just Work, Practical, with little understanding of issues either idealogical or technical.

I haven't a good word to say about Ubuntu or its users. Cards on the table I think its poor compared to other distributions, and attracts an Anti-GPL crowd that are misguided enough to believe that their world would be better without it.

I care about stability, Open-source drivers, Love GPL3, support hardware vendors that have open source drivers, know the difference between CC vs BSD vs GPL vs Other and the benefits of each, understand DRM, Open-formats etc...but I'm well aware that for every one of me there are 1000's!? that don't, and Ubuntu is for them, and its a winner.

Its not *perceived* a loser OS for zealots and geeks. Its a mainstream Linux for the average user. Ubuntu crossed the divide, and for that it is the Number #1 Distribution, and rightfully so.

but seriously its not that different from any *insert name here* distribution.
