I should have been more clear - no published standard for NTFS. Microsoft
may make changes in the future that work fine with Windows but will have
trouble for any other software. Nothing malicous, just that when they add
new features, they won't test Linux NTFS support before releasing it.
I think NTFS3.0 worked fine, and 3.1 (with win2k) introduced some new fun
stuff that breaks under some circumstances.
For astrology and the rest to flourish it is only necessary that those with
an IQ in double figures do nothing.
