Szabolcs, the biggest reason why we don't tell people to run applications from 
an NTFS partition is not strictly a technical one but just the fact that 
people then try to run applications they installed under windows.
This will fail for almost every application that depends on certain registry 
entries being created by the install process.

I don't know what other features Vitaly was talking about. Perhaps you can 
elaborate on that here, Vitaly?
