Mac OS X MacFUSE 2.0 was recently released onto the world, and now, its author, Amit Singh, as given Mac users something they've been waiting for ever since they first laid eyes on Mac OS X: access to numerous old (and more recent) file systems, through something called AncientFS. Always wanted to mount v1tap DEC tapes as ordinary volumes in Mac OS X? Here's your chance.

I believe that "NeXT" filesystem evolved into what is called now "UFS".

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Unix_File_System

NeXTStep, which was BSD-derived, also used a version of UFS. In Apple's Mac OS X, it is available as an alternative to HFS+, their proprietary filesystem. However, as of Mac OS X v10.5, one cannot install Mac OS X "Leopard" on a UFS-formatted volume. In addition, one cannot upgrade older versions of Mac OS X installed on UFS-formatted volumes to Leopard; upgrading requires reformatting the startup volume.

Its just a modified UFS...

Here's a thread on the NeXT forums I frequent about accessing NeXT partitions from inside Windows.

Thought it might be of interest.
