Re: I wish Linux would support the Apple File System (APFS)

"Imagine Macs and a majority of Linux machines using APFS, as opposed to Microsoft's NTFS"

Most Macs and Linux machines won't be using NTFS unless they dual boot with Windows, in which case APFS won't help since you will still require NTFS (or FAT) for the Windows install.

Should you use Linux and want to read APFS disks you can either use a closed source product from Paragon

Or there is an open source FUSE APFS in experimental stage on Github https://github.com/sgan81/apfs-fuse
