Can the OSX partition see the Windows partition?

Maybe a stupid question, but that's what this forum is for, right?
If I setup a dual boot OSX/Vista on a Macbook, can one partition see the other?
I have a dual boot Linux/Vista desktop at home, and Linux can see the Windows partition just fine. (Not the other way around though).
Was just curious.

Yes, OS X can read NTFS partitions, but not the other way around. Also, OS X has only read support (not read/write).
If you want an easy way to see both partitions with full read/write support both ways, check into Paragon NTFS for Mac.Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!
