Mac OS X can read NTFS volumes. Presently, I don't think there is any software that can write to them, however, though the open source community is working on it I believe.

The main issue is that MS wont release any info or sdk about ntfs.

There is code that will write to ntfs however it often breaks the filesystem totally!!
Currently the only stable form of writing to NTFS is addition of small amounts of information to files tha already exist on the disk. Hardly helpful!
