Because it sucks. When I moved over to linux a few weeks ago and I connected to my macbook via FTP I was surprised about how fast things went. I could copy a 200 meg file over in about a minute and a half. This took easily 10-15 minutes on windows. Why oh why? That's what I'm wondering right now. Anyway, anybody have any ideas? Is it the NTFS partitioning scheme? Or could it be lots of factors?
