The curse of installing an Ext3/4 container on an NTFS partition is that the
container is subject to the same issues as the host drive....while Ext3/4
are not subject to fragmentation, if the host drive is, that can cause
performance issues.

This is why it's preferred to install on a separate partition dedicated to
linux on a machine and dual boot that way.

Just an observation...
