Topic: "bridge" partition: NTFS or Ext3 or FAT23?
Hi all (first post!).
I'm a new Linux user (Ubuntu distro) and I'm trying to set an optimal dual-boot (but maybe multi-boot in the near future).
Hope my next question isnt totally off-topic... but i'm really interested for the advice of people who really knows about partitions and file-systems.
One thing that concerns me is:
I want to share my Thunderbird profile among Ubuntu and WinXP. Right now, the profile is in an NTFS partition.
Now, I have three options:
* move the profile to a "bridge partition" in FAT32 (readable/writeable from both systems).
* keep it in the NTFS partition and use the ntfs-3g driver to read and write from Linux.
* move it to a Ext3 partition and use the FS Driver to write on it from Windows
Please, could you share the pro/cons of each one?
ie:which one is more future-proof? which one is more reliable? which one has more performance? etc.
Thanks in advance and excuse my english.
