Linux/Ubuntu version needed

by RCyberW / October 19, 2008 4:26 AM PDT

I heard that there is a version of Linux/Ubuntu that supports NTFS format. But the person who told me about this forgot the version, so I was wondering anyone knows which version it is? Thanks

I used the first version I found with google and the word UBUNTU.

Tell me what you tried.

All the Recent versions do NTFS

I assume you want to Read or Write a NTFS partition?
The last two, Hardy Heron and Gutsy Gibbon both do it well.

Download the Desktop CD ISO file and burn it to CD,
Boot from the CD, you do NOT need to install to try.
You can mount an existing File System (NTFS, FAT) while yo try.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
