Anton's been promising that driver for two+ years now. If it ever
emerges, I'd be willing to revisit my opinion on this matter.

As to performance, can you back up your assertions with statistics?

Love to.

Something like:
http://ntfs-3g.org/performance.html

..which doesn't compare the ntfs kernel driver strangely enough (even if it did, taking data from one of the project sites is difficult to justify on impartiality grounds).

Nice detraction from the main thrust of the argument btw. So what happens if the kernel r/w driver gets released? There will be fireworks with mount.ntfs then...

Cheers
