NTFS [and it's predecessor HPFS] are Microsoft proprietary formats, and are not official document in any public source [unlike the myriad of formats that Mac OSX can treat as native formats - all of them are well specified, with open source implementations].

Apparently sharing from Windows to Mac is simple since the Mac can read NTFS. However sharing the other way seems more than difficult.

That's because Microsoft doesn't make any attempt to include HFS+ support in Windows – even though Apple has published Open Source for a HFS+ filesystem implementation as a part of the Darwin distribution.

I believe there is a third-party vendor selling a HFS+ implementation for Windows.
