Linux "With Filesystem in Userspace (FUSE), you can develop a user space filesystem framework without understanding filesystem internals or learning kernel module programming. Follow this simple, step-by-step guide to install, customize, and enable FUSE and AFS, so you can create your own fully functional filesystem in user space in Linux."

QNX ( ) has always had user-space filesystems, too... sort of a requirement for true microkernels.

This is really spiffy though, I'd love to see something like this on MacOS X and XP.

It would be relatively simple for a Windows FS developer (like myself ;) to create a shim FS that redirects FS calls to user-space.
