I've sent the below email to firstname.lastname@example.org on 22th of Dec 2007 but got
no reply, so please let me copy it below this time since quite many people
invested a lot effort into this to happen finally.
Thanks to thousands of contributors over the last twelve years, Linux
finally has stable read-write support for one of the most widely used and
complex files systems in existence (Microsoft's NTFS estimated source base
is over 500,000 lines, meanwhile FAT is around only 5,000).
In the same year the driver was included in over 100 Linux distributions,
including all the major ones, was also ported to OS X, FreeBSD, NetBSD,
Haiku, OpenSolaris, bigendian and 64-bit platforms.
