linux read vfat?
 
I'm pretty surprise that I can read my floppy under linux which use fat filesystem. So linux can actually read it? How about NTFS and such.

Windows can't read ext2/ext3 I'm surprise Linux can read the reverse.

Linux can read NTFS, but the wrote support is pretty wonky.. so you might not want to write onto a ntfs part. from linux.

There are ext3 and ext2 patches for windows, though,.

sure it can read fat, ntfs, etc .. Why is that surprising ?

If it were me thinking about it, I'd be blown away if Windows could read anything buts own, rather than the reverse ;)

That is what make linux so great as a network operating system. In order to be a file server it is going to have to know how to read differenct filesystems.

Did they fix the NTFS write support in the kernel? That would be awesome if they did....

Last I heard, most of the bugs have been worked out. You still might run into problems time and again with user permissions, but nothing that will corrupt the disk.
