Perhaps some of you can help me with what should have been among my
newbie questions a few years back: why is it that Linux- based systems
seem natively able to read, or at least be aware of NTFS and FAT-32
partitions, among others, while in reverse it appears that NTFS or
FAT-32 cannot read or are unaware or EXT2/3 partitions? Arrogance,
maybe...? That one's always kinda puzzled me...
