I use huge xfs partitions to store my data. I have a windows xp virtual machine that has read-only access to those partitions and use nero to create bluray backups of that data. No need for lousy ntfs partitions ;-)
The only usefulness for ntfs nowadays (at least for me) is external disks, for compatibility across different operating systems, media playing devices etc.
