It all depends, are you going to use it on Windows too? If yes, then
you don't really have a choice: NTFS but it's not that greate if you
need linux permissions. If you don't care about Windows ext file
systems are what you need, they work really good and have a lot of
useful features.

home run Linux. So Ext4 it is then.
