Very true. However, my understanding is that neither Dapper nor Edgy
include the cited ntfs-3g driver in the default kernels. Hence, the
Desktop images wouldn't be a good choice unless you remastered them (or
at minimum compiled and insmod'ed the driver).
(Of course, it turns out that Eric's friend doesn't need cutting-edge
R/W support -- or any kind of R/W support -- so Dapper _would_ be fine,
as would pretty much any live CD with NTFS support.)
I have to admit that I do like the next branch's name, just announced
the other day: 'Fiesty Fawn'. There's going to be some pretty lowbrow
humour about that, though.
