As far as I know it is distribution agnostic. There is more then one ntfs driver and I do not know which one is included with Arch but AFAIK in general ntfs-3g supports all file system write operations except for encryption.
Be aware, though I'm trying to confirm this. If you are a bleeding edge user who builds kernels from git, there may be a bug in the latest git releases (since 26 July) in the fuse module that prevents creation of new files on NTFS volumes (you can create directories and modify existing files).
I've been through all the usual channels to resolve this, and gone to the devs of ntfs-3g. Since the only change that sparked this is to the kernel , I've contacted the fuse driver maintainer and am waiting to hear back. The released kernel version is fine, but if you are a git user that depends on ntfs compatibility be aware that there may be problems.
