It is the OS which implements and enforces the permissions. So, even though
Windows cannot understand unix fs permissions, Linux can. For example, if
you create a '.sh'  on a NTFS or FAT32 fs, you cannot execute the program
in Linux until you give the file execute permission using .chmod +x
filename.sh'.
