1) Support for extended attributes so they are stored in NTFS streams, rather than in separate dot files. 2) Automatic filename translation of characters that Windows Explorer considers illegal. Quote from Tuxera's NTFS for Mac latest release 2010.12-RC: 3) Option to disable creation/access of all OS X folders created on the ntfs volumes (.fseventsd, .Trashes and .ds_store). When I plug my NTFS drive into my Mac, I don't want any files being created that I don't create myself. 4) Test and optimize when running a VMware Fusion Virtual Machine off of an NTFS partition (using Paragon NTFS driver). It's already fast, but I won't complain if it can be made faster. 5) Fix the bug where all NTFS partitions appear as Compressed in Disk Utility, when they are not.
