-1, Question does not show research effort. It's pretty easy to find documentation about NTFS in Ubuntu, for example. –  slhck May 14 '12 at 12:06
    
@slhck How can you say that ! I searched on google and couldn't find intent results –  nitin May 14 '12 at 12:09
    
I found that page by entering "ntfs ubuntu". I get more than seven million results for that query alone. It's really not that hard to find information online. What did you search for, if I may ask? –  slhck May 14 '12 at 12:10

Linux supports NTFS using the ntfs-3g FUSE driver. However, it is not recommended to use NTFS or any other FUSE filesystem for the Linux root partition (/), due to the added complexity. (NTFS for /home would be okay.)
