This is a good point to add a new advantage to ubuntu : if windows
crashes you can repair, by example a corrupted ntdlr, from inside
Ubuntu. Same if some files were corrupted by a virus.
The good way will be a warning when trying to mount an ntfs volume like
"Warning read only access, to enable write access do ......." . The
biggest problem on ntfs seems to have a real rights management.
