At Last!!

NTFS Project LogoNot much of a post and probably not real interesting to the general public but the true geeks who read shall be rejoicing loudly. Go out and have your self a $5 beer tonight in celebration. Oh wait…I guess I should tell you why first.

Well for the longest time our good penguin friend while supporting the wide spectrum of technologies out there has been limited in many ways from fully supporting the creatures that come from the hostile land that Microsoft supports and maintains much like the same way the boys at Blizzard keep WoW on it’s feet. The biggest thing Microsoft had created that wasn’t fully supported was the NTFS file system. While Linux had been able to support read access for many a year the mythical write access was just out of reach. Similar to efforts to turn lead in to gold. However unlike those crazy chemists of old the Linux community finally triumphed! ntfs-3g is the project that made this happen. It took forever but there it is.

So that my friends is why you can tip back a high quality cold one tonight to celebrate this occasion. I am going to go home, tip one(pom fizz not beer), and get to installing FreeNAS on a box and centralizing all my storage at long last. Yay for open source! Microsoft now truly does all your base belong to Linux.
