I'm pretty sure that there's support for that in both the ATi and NVidia
drivers, but not by default in Windows itself or with anybody else's
graphics chipsets.

I'm suspect that Linux supports more than Windows, depending on what
precisely you term 'linux'. But number-of-supported-filesystems is a
crap way to compare OSs anyway - the point, if any, should be the
quality of FS. I'm pretty sure either OS can be persuaded to use
anything the other can.
