FUSE is an acronym for Filesystem in Userspace.
MacFUSE is a related open source project that is no longer maintained. The code of MacFUSE was based:
- partly on the FreeBSD implementation of FUSE
- not on Linux FUSE.
Development of MacFUSE ceased in 2009.
Based on code from MacFUSE, successors include FUSE for OS X (OSXFUSE).
