MacFUSE Alternatives

    MacFUSE is described as 'allows you to extend Mac OS X's native file handling capabilities via 3rd-party file systems. It is used as a software building block by dozens of products' and is an app in the OS & Utilities category. There are seven alternatives to MacFUSE for Mac and Linux. The best alternative is Paragon NTFS for Mac OS X. It's not free, so if you're looking for a free alternative, you could try macFUSE or Ceph. Other great apps like MacFUSE are Tuxera NTFS for Mac (Paid), BeeGFS (Free), Fuse4X (Free, Open Source) and Lustre (Free, Open Source).
