Doesn't look like it:


Package ntfs-3g

     * lucid (otherosfs): read-write NTFS driver for FUSE
       1:2009.4.4-1ubuntu5: amd64 i386

This is the kind of small thing that makes a HUGE difference in people's 
perception of the quality of Ubuntu.  In point of fact, in the real 
world, NTFS is the logical choice, and hence needs to work well.
