Linux Finally Linux has got full read-write open source NTFS support! Preliminary benchmarks show that the still unoptimized driver already sometimes twice as fast as ext3 and 20-50 faster than the commercial Paragon NTFS. Interestingly Captive NTFS, which uses the native Windows NTFS driver, fails all benchmarks with file loss.

I always try to keep my data on another partition the OS. I've started using ext3 in XP for that (using Ext2 Installable File System For Windows from http://www.fs-driver.org/) and so far haven't run into any troubles. So you can already share your data easily without having to resort to FAT32.
