In contrast then, heard the superiority of NTFS. I haven't enough technical knowledge to look for credible sources that can specify to me.
I'd say you should stick with NTFS because it support larger drives (FAT32 can support partitions up to 32GB only). That's the pretty much default for these days.
The 32 Gig limit was put in WinNT5 disk formatting routine to make FAT32 look worse than it is.

Thansk for the links, however, as I read really really slow, the only highlights I got out of it is that journaling seems to be really really good, NTFS supports while EXT2 doesn't support it. EXT3, the successor does. However, can that EXT2 work around work with EXT3 partitions?
