A more comprehensive phrased question since I lost access to the other one.

I would ask that the other one be deleted, not this one, as it should not have been migrated in the first place.

There are currently two NTFS drivers available for Linux.

The NTFS driver included in the kernel, and the userspace NTFS-3G driver that makes use of FUSE.

By all accounts, NTFS-3G works perfectly.

My question then, is if the NTFS filesystem has been successfully reverse engineered, why have the kernel NTFS team not implemented the changes in their driver? At the moment it is still marked as experimental, and there is a good chance it will destroy your data.

Note: This has absolutely nothing to do with distributions...
