It was my mistake in post #1. In fact, I do use Windows. I use it sometimes to run Nero (when cdrecord or growisofs do not do what I want) and some other programs. So, besides the Windows partition I have an extra NTFS partition mainly to store large downloads that I must later write onto CD/DVDs.


@allend: thank you allend for your post.I didn't know that.

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.
