He is right, if it is unmaintained it should be removed.
I would go even further and say that it should be removed in any case.
NTFS is not a POSIX filesystem, you can’t install a working Linux system onto an NTFS drive (at least not without a great deal of effort and with broken functionality). So why bloat the (already terribly bloated) Linux kernel with it?
BSD? Linux looks pretty good. However I look at both. UNIX yes.
Err yes, I didn’t read the article, my bad whoops! I don’t see the need for NTFS. What I was saying was that UNIX and it’s babies look pretty fine to me. Sometimes my mouth is bigger than my brain! I use ext4 with Linux but I’m playing around with zfs with a new BSD install from scratch. Early days though and a lot of learning to do. Heck, I’m still learning Linux since 2010!
