Linux boosts Microsoft NTFS support as Linus Torvalds complains about GitHub merges
Better support for Microsoft's NTFS file-system is coming to the Linux 5.15 kernel, along with some important process and security lessons for developers about how code submissions to the kernel should be made.
Linux creator Linus Torvalds has agreed to include Paragon Software's NTFS3 kernel driver, giving the Linux kernel 5.15 release improved support for Microsoft's NTFS file-system. But he also had some process and security lessons to offer developers about how code submissions to the kernel should be made.
Paragon's NTFS driver will make working with Windows' NTFS drives in Linux an easier task — ending decades of difficulties with Microsoft's proprietary file system that succeeded FAT.
