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. The addition of Paragon NTFS3 kernel driver follows a prompt from Torvalds in August to go for it and “actually submit” the code so it can be merged into the kernel, telling Paragon that it “should just make a git pull request for it.” See also: Linux turns 30: Linus Torvalds on his “just a hobby” operating system As spotted by Phoronix , Torvalds late last week asked Paragon Software again whether the NTFS3 pull request would be submitted for Linux 5.15. Konstantin Komarov of Paragon Software replied upon Friday with the NTFS3 pull request but did so — to the dismay of Torvalds — via Github’s web interface. “This is NTFS read-write driver….
