    I have not looked in to which ones would suit best what I do so, I use what I believe are the more popular ones.

    On my laptop internal hard disk drive, I use ext4 for Arch Linux and my data partition and NTFS for Windows. On my external hard disk drive, I use NTFS and WBFS. On my MicroSD card and two USB flash drives, I use FAT32.

    NTFS. I wish Windows would work on support for more.

    FAT 32 on all Windows. On a single user PCs, I don't need file permissions. I will not accept a file system that stores data, executables, or usage tracks in ways not easily viewable (ADS). IMO, the risk and potential for abuse/misuse of ADS outweighs its benefits.

    EXT4 on Ubuntu Linux, NTFS on Windows 7 64-bit + external hard drives, and FAT32 on flash drives + PSP. Way more if you count my virtual machines. Would be using exFAT if it was more compatible.

    Hello,

    I have a 1 TB hard drive that uses NTFS, and an 8 GB USB flash drive that uses FAT32.

    Regards,

    Nathan

    I voted "other" because I didn't see an option for "default suggested by Operating System".

    Well that default is most likely one of those that are available. For Linux, most likely ext2, ext3, or ext4; OS X, hfs+, and Windows NTFS.

    What I meant to convey is that I don't choose. With Ubuntu 11.04, it's ext3 as default and Win 7 has NTFS.

    Ok... you use ext3 and NTFS..... :)

    I pretty much do the same thing and use the default with a few exceptions.
