    For the sake of another vote: Yes, I do use NTFS primarily for data
    storage, and No, I don't like gratuitous x-bits. Not *at all*. Not
    because I work with some specific software that should be "fixed", but
    because I think it is quite b0rken to flag "executable" in the general

    What I would like to see (probably exists somewhere) is a (userland)
    tool which can fire up an exec image residing in a readable (not
    executable) file - that would take care of the "star office
    installation" case, as well. If said tool was called "run" it would
    have all semantics intuitively expected by me.

    But even without "run" I'd be very much happier with x off by default
    - those who want it should turn it on using mount -o fmask, not the
    other way around.

    Just my opinion.

    So long,
