There are a few softwares with support for those filesystems out there, like Linux Reader or ext2fsd.

That would require lots of work very for very little gain. And since my time is limited this is not something I can spend time one.
However the API/SDK for creating file system plugins are open. So if anyone what to do it. fell free.

But is there not ext2/3/4 drivers for windows so you get direct support reading them via Windows ? I remember using something like that long ago.

I can only recommend, if someone uses Linux, to use Btrfs as default file system.

There is a Btrfs driver for Windows. So I can copy my files and folders that I created on Linux to Windows with Multi Commander.
