    Talking accessing your ext2 and ext3 partitions from Windows (with write permission aswell)

    Hi gus just to let you all know i found this handy app that works realy well in windows to access your linux partitions, its real easy to install and uses a GUI for you to decide which drive letters to assign etc...

    hope it helps somebody out...

    Re: accessing your ext2 and ext3 partitions from Windoze (with write permission aswell)

    While I was in Windoze for about 5 minutes todsy (I haven't gone to the dark side, just needed to look at a site which needed some Java Environment Runtime crap that Linux apparently doesn't have installed), I DLed this, and it might be useful to save all my important files onto my Windows HD, then wipe my 5.04, and install 5.10 onto, then hopefully put everything important back onto 5.10. Thanks!

    Provided I get it working . . .

    Actually it's spelled "Windows".

    Quite aware of that, thanks, but whenever I go into Windows, I can't help but notice how much slower things run there. OpenOffice takes longer to open in Windoze then in Ubuntu, same with Firefox, etc. Therefore, Windows is slower then Ubuntu, so it earns the name Windoze.

    I am not intentionally bashing Windoze or M$ here, i am just stating that Windoze runs slower for me then Ubuntu, thus the name. I didn't mean any offense, of course

    This is great if it works like it says, I need for music and video transfering to windows. Sony sucks at making software, so this is a great step in making linux a bigger part of my life.

    saying that is

    not to flame or anything, but it's generally not cool to bash any OS, except maybe those >1kb punchcard OS's
