[ros-dev] Security policy for FAT partition driver?

Remember the another filesystem driver could be installed in WinNT as part of the ReactOS setup in those dual boot scenarios. Maybe WinNT could boot from that X filesystem too. You won't be using an NTFS partition or creating it and you won't need to create a different driver for NT since ROS driver should run ok on NT.

That seems to make perfect sense.

Why would anyone need/want to use NTFS if they don't need to access existing
NTFS drives?
If they do have existing NTFS drives, then as Jonathan says, they should
also have the driver from MS to access it.
