"NTFS write support" reliable ?

Anyone could tell me if the "NTFS write support" option on the kernel is reliable ?
I mean, is it safe to write on a windowsXp/NTFS part of the hard disk ? Or is it dangerous for data integrity ? Can u loose all ur datas if u write on a windowsXp/NTFS part of the hard disk ?
Anyone of you has already had any problem with "NTFS write support" ?
Merci. Grazie. Gracias. Danke. Efraristo. Spassiba. Thanks.

Nobody really uses the write support it is still too dangerous. Since the driver was rewritten I believe that it is more stable but you definately wouldn't risk any data using it.

My advice would be not to use write support unless you are testing/debugging it.
