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.

Anton Altaparmakov, a key developer at Tuxera and long-time Linux NTFS developer along with formerly spearheading Mac OS X NTFS support at Apple, has made some rather bold claims. Anton says that their proprietary NTFS kernel driver is much faster than EXT3/EXT4, and by the margins reported of 2x, it would also make it faster than any other file-system like Btrfs and XFS.

And the fact that Freya is still very much in beta makes the whole affair all the more interesting. A list of reasons why I prefer elementary OS Freya over Ubuntu 14.10 at the moment. Read more
