Having Linux on NTFS can bring us to serious revolution across Windows
users ! A real revolution in how Windows users *think* about openSUSE
!

Oh, really.

But we have to make it simple for the Windows crowd to install
openSUSE on the same NTFS partition as Windows. (such as C:\)

"we" ?
Sure, go ahead, implement a proof-of-concept then come back with "!!!".

This means either enhance our current "Basic Setup Routine" and
"Yast-setup" to handle those new requirements easily, or we need to
write completely new (Windows-based) setup for openSUSE distro. Plus,
We can go both directions at once. :)

Go ahead. The source code is available.

This is the best laugh I've had in a week or two. He left out asking for crashes and BSOD.
I state - LINUX IS NOT WINDOWS, nor is it a Windows clone. Learn it or leave it. Not all Windows users are hard-of-learning and most Linux users were once and perhaps are still Windows users, me an exception, I could never use the stuff without uttering a constant stream of expletives and curse every call I get to help solve the many Windows problems people land on me.
On Sunday I went to fix a Windows box and had a discussion with 2 very bright lads who thought Bill Gates had invented the computer. I just took them back in history as far as Eckert and Mauchly, Univac and IBM - the computer before Bill Gates was born.
Regards
Sid.
