"Indeed. If Paragon were truely committed to this, they'd step up with the manpower to document the hell out of everything and rewrite this to comply with standard formats"

Forget Paragon / NTFS. What would the Linux kernel community do with 27,000 lines of code they didn't like the style of and also required a lot of understanding but represented something they really, really wanted to incorporate into their kernel? Say it was Nvidia offering their driver code base on a take-it-or-leave-it basis?

Paragon seem to be copping some bad publicity from this - so how is that supposed to encourage other companies to donate code?
