Writing to NTFS drives on Mac OS X is slow!
Well I followed instructions for installing both MacFUSE and NTFS-3G (the NTFS-3G_1.5012-stable-catacombae.dmg download) and it works fine.
However, at least on my G5 it’s really slow. So slow, in fact, that it’s faster connecting one drive to a real PC and the other to the mac and connecting them via FileSharing.
Lastly, it doesn’t stop the Mac from writing “._” or “dot underscore” cruft, so perhaps using BlueHarvest might help that.
