Tuxera Celebrates Over 1 Million NTFS for Mac Downloads
The World’s First and Fastest NTFS for Mac Solution Defines the Standard

HELSINKI, FINLAND. Tuxera Ltd, the creator of the leading NTFS end exFAT file system drivers, celebrates the fact that its NTFS for Mac technology has exceeded 1 million downloads. Tuxera NTFS for Mac continues to define the gold standard for file system interoperability between Mac and Windows computers. The product has won awards for its extreme performance and flawless operation.

Tuxera leads the NTFS-3G open source project, which made a breakthrough in January 2007 being the first in the world to release NTFS read/write support on Mac OS X. Since then Tuxera has continued to innovate its market-leading technology. The high-performance Tuxera NTFS for Mac remains today as the world’s fastest NTFS for Mac solution. Read and write speeds have reached 100MB/s, and in practice the speed is usually limited only by the hardware.

“Make no mistake: we were the first on Mac, and remain the first both in stability and performance. We also do not charge for any performance and feature updates, which we frequently publish during the year. Our license is forever.” noted Mikko Välimäki, Tuxera CEO.

Tuxera NTFS for Mac is quickly becoming a must-have for consumers who migrate from Windows to Mac, and wish to fully use their Windows-formatted hard drives and memory sticks from the new system. Tuxera has also sold volume licenses to universities and media production companies, which have mixed Windows and Mac environments with tens or hundreds of computers.
