Mac OS X Amit Singh has just announced that Google is releasing MacFUSE, a FUSE compliant file system implementation mechanism for Mac OS X, which makes a plethora of file systems already working on Linux easily available to Mac OS X users as well. Some of the tested file systems include full read-write NTFS by NTFS-3G, transparent encryptions by CryptoFS and EncFS, SSHFS, GmailFS, and more.

Now now, theres no need for name calling.

A user-space filesystem for windows would be very useful IMHO.

OSS people don't seem to have any problems with this (look OO.o, FFox, Gimp, Gtk,...). You should preach this kind of sentiment to MS and Apple.

They reserve their things for people using proper OS and not otherwise.
