That may be an issue in your case (environment / NAS device) however
it is not true in general.  I have several Buffalo Terastation Pro II NAS.
They come formatted XFS file system, Raid 5, Active Directory support,
and completely compatible  with Windows Server and my Linux servers.
Actually, Buffalo recommends that you stick with XFS even though you
may reformat.
