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).

Gladly.
Embrace and Extend. Seriously. Ubuntu didn't get where it is by sticking to religious ideals. They did things that cater best to Windows users, and reached out with those (the embrace part). Then, they make it better and easier to where you don't want to do it any other way (extend).
Nothing different than MS has done with any of their major ventures (Xbox the most recent). Not to say it's a bad way of doing business either.

Full disclosure: this comment typed in Konqueror on Kubuntu 6.10, and I wouldn't have it any other way.
