    Well considering Tiger won't be out until next year and the past 3 versions of OS X have not had the full capabilities I doubt Tiger will
    Don't forget to use the new User Reputation System

    NTFS is a closed Microsoft format. It is very difficult to support NTFS, since Microsoft will not share the details of how it operates. A few open-source groups have started to reverse-engineer NTFS, but Apple is apparently not satisfied with their work so far.

    What's so sad about that?! I don't think there's a real need for that...
