I must be missing something. Why would anybody need to read/write files in the format of another OS?
I have Macs and Linux. Whenever I want to transfer something around the house, I use SCP. Around the country, it's usually an email attachment or rsync over SSH. I've never even thought of pulling a disk out of one machine to read it on another. Not since the floppy days, anyway.
What have I overlooked? Why does that capability even exist on an OS? Reformatted thumb drives?
You might have a multi-boot system, i.e., several OSes installed...
Yep..I can skip chroot and v-box. I can check file systems and many
other things without using a flash drive or booting other media and it's
great for testing upstream.
