    See subject-line/title above, & url below:

    :)

    * Good news, I suppose, for Linux folks that "dualboot" up w/ Ms' OS' in the mix, too!

    APK

    P.S.=> More "in-depth" views on this (from folks FAR more into Linux than I am) are here @ SlashDot (the home of the Penguin online largely, lol, imo (you've GOTTA admit there is a HUGE "pro-linux/anti-windows" thing going on there)):

    Enjoy! apk

    Cool! So I don't need to use a FAT32 partition to share my files anymore? Good news.

    Yes, it is quite cool imo as well (though I no longer use Linux anymore here)...

    :)

    * Writes to NTFS was never "right" before & messed up quite a lot, so you are probably 'dead-on right' about not having to partition a Fat32 there anymore...

    APK

    P.S.=> Jim, if you try it? Do let the others here know your results (myself included, because this sounds pretty damn good)... apk

    Probably won't try it for a while but I'll let you know how it goes if I do.

    Don't blame you, because iirc? Doing low-level alterations like this mean a "kernel rebuild/recompile" possibly, because of its "monolithic core" design in Linux.

    (I never pulled that before so I don't know, I was just one of those folks that used Linux for kicks/experimentation/learning purposes a few times, briefly... every so many builds of it, if sufficient improvements occur on it? I give it a go!)

    :)

    * You know, I don't know if you've seen the thread here about the 2.6.17 build of it, but it too has some pretty cool performance-related improvements...

    (Some 'FYI')
