I use NTFS on Win XP and most of the time I use EXT3 for linux.
So which file system do you use?
Same as you, XP Home, I swear by it, very secure for my home network.
NTFS and XP. Ext 3 for Linux
pc 1 , win 95
pc 2, win xp pro
laptop, win xp home
i really ony use my laptop - its fast cool and brill unlike;
pc 1 is on win 95 - rubish
pc 2 has only 16mb of ram ( well not really but theres a fult so it can only read 16mb of the 512mb ram fitted )
I use Win XP.

Fat 32 with Win XP Pro, the joys of backwards compatability with old dos.
mac os x HFS Plus,no crashes
windows XP 3.1 and dos fat16,fat32,nfts, crashes a whole lot
MacOS X = HFS+ Journaled
Windows XP = NTFS
Linux = Ext3
I was using FAT32 for Windows partition (to be able to write things into it from Linux installation), but now I converted it to NTFS cause Linux is gone out of my personal (not professional) life for good. It is way faster, secure then FAT32 was.
NTFS for Win Xp and I do believe Longhorn runs under Winfs
What's the difference between the file systems really? I've not been checking them all.
fat 16 and fat 32 are the old file systems used for win 95 up to Win Me. Not very secure or reliable. When they moved to ntfs it made the o/s more stable,more secure and faster. Winfs file system is the new one out for Longhorn or was for longhorn,I do believe they have pulled it out of Longhorn and are putting it in the next release of Xp. I could be mistaken but I think thats about it
Me? Definitely NTFS!
NTFS Windows XP for both of my harddrives
