So what's the difference between MTP and FTP?
mtp, i guess from a user perspective, when you connect your switch to usb, you just open an explorer window and drag and drop files. No need for using ftp programs to transfer data. (i know theoretically explorer can log into an ftp server too..but still..)

I hope this gets updated, there was a beta of this before.... but it didn't go anywhere, in fact the GitHub page says "abort" or something.

MTP is the same protocol a ton of mobile devices, IE Camera's, Smartphones, and other storage devices use over USB (Or whatever connection) to communicate with each other or a computer for example.

It's a pretty standard protocol.
