Consolidation of HDD manufacturers (image from WikiMedia)
Earlier this year I wrote about Accessing Mac Hard Drives from Windows 7/8: Boot Camp Support Software 5.0.5033 and mentioned that there are also a few solutions for writing NTFS volumes from Mac OS X.
Thanks to dhardy03, I learned that Seagate now provides NTFS drivers for Mac OS X for Free. The installer name indicates it is an OEM version of the Paragon NTFS drivers for Mac OS X.
I’m not sure yet if it works only on Seagate drives, but since the only other HDD manufacturers left are Toshiba and Western Digital (Toshiba is a much smaller HDD manufacturer than WD and SD), it is a substantial part of the market.
I might try NTFS-3G as well, but that hasn’t been updated for a while and has been replaced by the commercial Tuxera product.

I’m a command-line addict, so this was a great SuperUser question by Željko Filipin:
I know how to find Mac OS X version from GUI: Apple Menu (top left) > About This Mac
Is there a Terminal command that will tell me Mac OS X version?
It was answered by User delfuego:
You have a few options:
These commands led me to this post: Finding OS X Version and Build Information From the Command Line | The Nubby Admin that also showed these commands:
osascript -e 'system info'
Where uname shows only the kernal version, oascript gives a ton of information. Read the rest of this entry »
