Dual Boot File Systems


Is there any good reason not to use NTFS for all of my WinXP partitions on a dual-boot machine?

Yes, as a person who duel boots, and uses NTFS for Windows, I would like to say I would much rather have Fat32... The no writing gets very annoying... :P

Personnaly, I've got two partitions for windows, one NTFS where the OS is stored, and one FAT where I keep my documents and stuff I'd like to play with in Linux as well.
