    Default Tuxera Claims NTFS Is The Fastest File-System For Linux

    Phoronix: Tuxera Claims NTFS Is The Fastest File-System For Linux

    Coincidently there's some more file-system news after just writing about the EXT4 and Btrfs file-systems with the Linux 3.0 kernel. A Phoronix reader has pointed out that a developer at Tuxera is claiming their proprietary NTFS Linux kernel driver makes the Microsoft file-system the fastest choice under Linux. Reportedly this kernel driver that implements Microsoft NTFS support is about twice as fast as EXT4, the main Linux file-system of choice right now...

    This person should really make a ext4 driver with those algorithms that speed stuff up.

    It's not NTFS that's faster, it's a driver that's faster because of some algorithm.

    Maybe (because I'm not familiar with filesystems) it doesn't even matter that much and ext4 driver with those features beats that ntfs driver again.

    Default Faster at doing what?

    I doubt NTFS is faster at everything while providing the same features as EXT4, XFS and Btrfs so bring on the benchmarks and show us!

    Default What about

    Tuxera-NTFS on Linux vs MS-NTFS on Win7?

    Indeed, I'd rather have a file system that is slower but doesn't eat your data for lunch. And yea, it seems that it's an algorithm that does that, although it could be specific to NTFS.
