The advantage is that you're using Linux with ext2 and Windows NT with NTFS. *g*

ext3 and reiser and other journalled file systems are more comparable to NTFS, anyway. ext2's kind of comparable to FAT32, I suppose.

Those are two different file systems. ext2 is much more efficient. No defragging required.

ext2 cannot access NTFS. Both ext2 and NTFS are filesystems. The only thing that can access NTFS is the NTFS module or software in the OS.
