Read/write support for ntfs in Linux through ntfs-3g is far superior in
stability to the ext2 drivers in windows. I tried using the ext2 driver
in windows and lost two Linux distributions to faulty errors in the
drive and I have herd others with similar experience. I have been using
ntfs-3g which works perfectly without a problem and never herd any
problems with it.
Also, when you think of it, which OS are you more likely to be running.
If it is Linux the ntfs-3g is much more convenient as you can move
files within the safe environment of Linux instead of needing to move
As mentioned, the FAT32 is a great way to move files. That is what I
first used when moving from windows to Linux. Just make a smaller FAT32
partition on your hard drive and place files in it from either system.
