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).

RE[5]: Ubuntu=Windows Convert

Yes an excellent example of not listening to what I had to say:

"but I had some problems with videocard support on some systems and the showstopper at home it would not print ot my HP PSC all-in-one."

You clearly didn't buy either hardware with Open-source drivers in mind and yet claim to be a long time convert. Its the tail wagging the dog.

The videocard problems were on work systems which I had not chosen and which Hoary claimed to support. While my HP PSC printer had been specifically chosen for its open drivers and good Linux support. So much for your understanding of what I wrote and knowledge of what printers are well supported for Linux.

What I object to is the emergence of snide ill argued attacks on the distro and its users just because it has become popular.

The ubuntu stuff extends further than a couple of binary drivers, have a look at some of the fendora blogs.

What fendora blogs (sic) - what "stuff" and URL's please.

Stop the unsubstantiated innuendo. Enough of this idiocy !
