Default Linux Ext2 Installable File System For Windows

Not sure how big of a deal this is for you dual boot linux folks, but seems to me this has been an issue for a while.

Allows both Read/Write functions on Ext2 formatted drives from within windows.

Heh... I don't actually need it ATM. I just saw the link up on Majorgeeks and remembered that there had been something about "forcing" linux to use the non-native NTFS if I wanted a dual boot setup that could share files.

Just thought it might be of some use to folks here. :)

Been using it to access the drives in the DNS-323. Works great.

Oh and technically speaking EXT2 is a inferior file system compared to EXT3.

EXT3 has a journal ling capabilities which is better in the event of a improper shutdown.

Linux Ext3 volumes can also be accessed. To do that, please read the FAQ section.
