That's a completely false and baseless assumption. Au Contraire, there
are a plethora of forensics tools and tool kits that run on Linux that
could help you recover data from ext3, reiserfs and other linux and
windows file systems, and even from bare disks. Here are a few that
you can find in the Ubuntu Repos:

recover, testdisk, magic rescue, e2undel, lazarus (comes with the tct
package), icat (from the sleuthkit package). Some of these tools are
included in the Helix Knoppix base live forensics CD
