With so many people making the transition from Windows to Linux operating systems, there are bound to be those who want to dip their toes in linux waters before making a complete dive.
For such as these (including the newbie here
) there will be the desire to maintain —and use— the old existing files whilst cautiously building up a new base, and in these cases the issue of the problem of linux writing to NTFS files will raise its head.
I understand that using FAT32 is fine for both (although also that it isn't as good as NTFS), but that the best for linux use is "Ext3" (a concept I never heard of until three days ago). As a total newcomer, I'd like to read about the ins-ands-outs, the pros-and-cons before deciding on a method to adopt and a distro to use.
Can anyone point me?
Apologies if this has already been covered elsewhere: I have scanned the boards and posts, without luck so far.
