Common filesystem between Win8 and Linux? Can't use FAT32
I'm in the process of moving all of my files from my Windows "C:" drive to a shared partition. I tried FAT32 since I know both OSes work fine with it, but the 4GB file size limit won't work. I've looked for ext2/3/4 drivers for Windows, but none of them will work on Win8.
The only option that I see is to make the shared partition an NTFS one. Is Linux support for NTFS good enough for this? Or is there another option that I'm not aware of?
