Re: dual boot with Fedora and NTFS on windows: is it safe ?

I gave up trying to access NTFS from Linux a couple of years ago,
when I found that even *read* access was unreliable (the propaganda
from the rabid Linux supporters notwithstanding). I found that file
names were unreliable, and I do not mean the standard issue of
NTFS being case preserving, but case ignoring. I mean like control
characters getting stuck into file names. Since the file names
were not reliable, I didn't check further into data integrity.

I can explain it for you, but I can't understand it for you.
I speak only for myself, and I am unanimous in that!
