How many linux distros have you tried? Desktop-oriented distributions always include fuse NTFS and kernel FAT/VFAT drivers. I have never had problems with windows formatted drive in linux in many years. And if the fuse ntfs driver is missing e.g. in plain netinstall debian (definitely not the distro for you), it is only one apt-get command away.

Personally, I'm moving from Intel based to ARM based system, cheaper, smaller & cooler.

12 different ones. PCLinuxOS. Puppy. Mint. Ubuntu. Kubuntu. CentOS. Sabayon. Fedora. Arch. Slackware. Knoppix. Mandriva. DSL. I DO have problems. Lost data, a required update bricks an install several times, driver issues that were fixed with Wxx in 1998, cannot use NTFS data, and so on. Never again. You guys lost me, forever. End of discussion. My mind is closed on the matter. Waste someone else's time. I have wasted enough of my precious life on Linux. Never again.

Installing another distro instead of learning how to fix a problem in one of the major desktop distributions is a waste of time indeed. I settled on ubuntu/debian many years ago and step by step learned the principles, the best practices, etc. I played with other distributions just for curiosity, not out of necessity when hitting a bug, suboptimal setup, or inconvenience.

But this bit of advice based on my personal experience is meant for others reading this thread. I have absolutely no intention to convince you into using something else than what you are happy with. And I cannot imagine anyone who could have the feeling of having lost you in this regard.

Is there any way that it saves a an external library? My experience is that anytime you connect it again, it takes ages to re-read the external library (which has not changed in the mean time).
